I have just got to note this article, since it reminds me of the old company, although, in Canada, we aren't so trigger-happy. Seems, the always-stoned IT department (so it appeared to me!), gave this totally clueless management-type a laptop. Unfortunately, it was not the famous Etch-a-Sketch from Dilbert, but something infinitely more sinister.
Everybody knows, the stoned IT guys are the biggest downloaders of porn and scooper-pooper of viruses, but nobody can catch them! They gave this guy a loaded laptop, with tons of porn viruses, and no firewall. After a while, they took it back and shot him! At least in the States, he'll have fun suing!
