What your IT people are saying about you...

True tales of computer catastrophes, IT management mishaps, and the like may be found every weekday at The Shark Tank. Here's a sample from Monday's column:
Contractor pilot fish working at a big suburban water and sewer company installs a user's new PC, and when he tests the e-mail client, he discovers more than 3,000 unread messages. Could that be right? "It is," user tells fish. "When I started here a few years ago, the systems people set me up with an e-mail account, but they wouldn't or couldn't give me a computer. People have been sending me messages for a few years, and I've never read or replied to any of them."
