Never Trust A SysAdmin

Ever. Just don't do it.

I head to a client's site. In order to connect to their domain I have to let a sysAdmin f*ck with my machine.

Alarm bells go off, but I let the monkey have his banana.

To cut a long story short: it's the next day, many hours of work have been lost. Much frustration has been achieved. And I have a new rule:

It's the thin edge of the wedge. We let sysAdmin's screw with our machines today. What's next? Database administrators messing with our databases?

I'm due to head out to another client in a few minutes... this time, things will be different...
