Do you ever run into those office network users who are real "computer whizzes"? This morning I got a call from "Bob" who wanted to share some files with "Willie", and out-of-town employee who's visiting the office. Willie and Bob both fancy themselves computer gurus because they graduated from EE programs many years ago, and they assume that however they imagine the network works is how it works. So Bob shares C:\, using Windows' default permission of Full Control for everyone. He then tells Willie to logon to his computer and copy the files. Willie doesn't quite grasp the "logon" terminology, but being a guru he starts looking for "Bob" in Network Neighborhood. Of course, since Bob's PC has a hostname of G16F56, Willie can't find it. So he calls me and informs me that the Domain Controller is broken. ;Q After several (toothpulling) questions I figure out what they're trying to do and I check Bob's PC. C:\ is shared under three separate shares, all giving Everyone Full Control. I change it to one share with readonly access for Authenticated Users, since Bob really doesn't know what folders Willie needs to get into. I then go to Willie's machine to setup a shortcut, but Willie's OhSoCute automatic backup to USB drive program has started and is locked up because it can't find the (unconnected) USB drive. Willie configured it to assume the drive is always connected. So we waited while Willie unsuccessfully tried to get out of the routine, finally having to cold boot. I then make a shortcut to Bob's share and find that Willie is actually unfamiliar with the Hasbro interface and can't seem to navigate to the file folder he needs. To be fair, it doesn't help that Bob doesn't know where he put the files he wants to give to Willie. I found them in the innovatively named "New Folder". I need a beer.
