Possibly... our IT department is incredibly feeble and stupid. I
avoid dealing with them completely. If people remember back to when
we had a local office in NYC, I was running a hidden NetBSD firewall
under their noses to allow an unrestricted subnet proper access to
the Internet without them getting uppity about putting our tech
machines under their control (a lot of it was my own personal
hardware; all of it used to do our jobs) -- a recipe for disaster
since one of those boxes was HP-UX, one was an SS20, and one was a
Powermac G4 running OS X... and they have zero corporate clue about
UNIX or MacOS.
