TR'S HOT TOPIC: IDIOT-PROOFING THE END-USER PCs

When somebody tells you (or, rather, tells GADGETGIRL) that you're
required to give a two-and-a-half-hour presentation on your own IT
department, it's easy to get desperate for IT conversational topics. To
those looking for PowerPoint space-fillers, the TR community offers the
following suggested topics: Idiot-proofing user PCs; the difference
between hackers and crackers; proper IT dress code; your all-time
greatest IT blunders.
