TR'S HOT TOPIC: 101 CLASSIC IT BLUNDERS

TechRepublic's great online debate last week was what could possibly
constitute your worst possible IT blunder. Based on our popular topics,
the candidates include: Trying to make money supporting home users;
Trying to idiot-proof corporate workstations (especially when you have
managers trying to access porn); and trying to prove the relative
idiocy of online trolls.
