If you tell enough stories, perhaps the moral will show up.


Classic Fail

Went to pick up my printout from the printer and there it was: The biggest secret in the firm, and one from which I am firmly excluded. Ninety colour pages which someone had collected, collated and left prominently displayed to be picked up.

A few minutes in the event log of the print server gave the answer -- the same document printed twice in succession: the signature of a user losing track of what they've done. He's back on track now.

The report had been out on display for thirty minutes when I found it. I imagine the person who tidied it up will be one of the three people who used that printer between me and the inadvertent leak. But who else saw it is much harder to tell.
