That's a pretty neat little gadget!

I try to remember to lock my PC every time I step away, mostly because at my employer I've got full Domain Admin privileges (and lets not get started on that, I *KNOW* it's a bad practice) and also I just don't want anyone wandering over to read my e-mails.

Of course, sometimes I go faster than Windows likes, so I hit CTRL+ALT+DEL, then Space, but it hasn't gotten to the screen where the space would hit "Lock," so I come back, hit CTRL+ALT+DEL to unlock and lock in, and lock it...
Always fun when I do that...

Kind of hard to hit the Windows logo key when your keyboard was manufactured in 1987 and is one of these...
:-D

You'll get my Modem M when you pry it from my cold, dead hands. If I don't bash your head in with it first, then rinse of the gore so I can keep using it...

Sounds all to familar, especially with people not locking their workstations. At a previous employer we had a security audit for anyone working on sensitive high level information and if you worked on the Ministry of Defence contracts, to which we where given a sonar to put on top of our monitors, so that if you moved so many inches away from your workstation it automatically locked the machine for you.

That isn't really a bad idea for people working in highly sensitive environments. I usually remember to lock my workstation but sometimes I forget. What really got me to lock the machine was when someone put a gay sex scene as my wallpaper. Most of us IT people aren't easily offended but if someone would do that then the mind can run wild wondering what else they might do.

At a previous employer, we played "donuts". If you walked away from your station and didn't lock it, then whoever noticed this would pop up a new email and send it to the "Admin" group address with the word "donuts" as the subject (which takes all of about 10 seconds). Who ever was dumb enough to leave their station unlocked then had to buy donuts for the entire admin team that Friday. It was a fairly large admin team, so you had to be ready to shell out 50-60 bucks.

A little goofy, but it drove the point home...lock your station every time, or it will cost you.


That is an excellent idea.

Nah, the Delorean went out in 1982, although there is a company down in Texas looking to bring back the Delorean in new-build cars...Cool

And you can still buy buckling spring keyboards, now with USB and Windows keys!!

Nothing really - until you have a messed up Windows Keyboard that gets sticky keys when you log back in...I've had to retrain myself to hit CTRL-ALT-DEL {enter} on Windows 7 to avoid this issue.

A bit frustrating when I come back to the workstation, login - open email and start to type out an email and instead of words I get all kinds of different windows opening up that I didn't want Wink

Some years back I was at a company, and we had one employee who would not lock his workstation.. 70%+ of the time. Also thanks to his personal connections, he was able to get access to things that he had no business in (in my humble Opinion). One day someone from the shop floor got on his system and found out all sorts of personal information about our owner's finances, and let all the shop floor employees know. Yep.. that made things VERY interesting for some time.

In an attempt to teach a user this lesson, I sent an email from his unlocked and unattended workstation to the president of the company - resigning his position.

He learned.

:-P
