A rabid wolverine in my underwear

Aagh! There's a problem with the corporate email server: it's locked out everyone whose middle initial starts with A to P. This, together with the usual nonsense with the Anti-Virus updates, wipes out the virtual memory on my PC.

To rub my nose in it I can't restart the PC because it won't close down because the System Idle Process won't close down(!!!)

We have an expression on this side of the pond which pretty well sums up your situation: "You're up sh*t's creek without a paddle".

Indeed so, Lavinia!

...locked out everyone whose middle initial starts with A to P... Instead, with application of some artificial intelligence techniques, you should be able to get it to lock out anybody who's showed themselves to be a complete knob.

I can never decide whether it is wise or folly to build idleness into a system. That it wont totally shutdown because it's idle seems is taking inactivity to new heights.

They promised us an intelligent network. It is obviously a malign intelligence.

Ellis: local authorities don't like using macs 'cos they're identified with creative people who want to do things.
