Plus: the PC that ate disks and was sated with sticky tape

On-Call Welcome again to On-Call, The Register's weekly trawl through readers' memories of dealing with dim users or dangerous bosses, often at ridiculous times.

This week, a pair of sticky situations starting with one sent to us by “Tim”.

Tim's tale comes from his first job when he was “fresh faced out of University and on the first rung of the IT career ladder working on the 1st line help desk of a financial services company.”

Most days on that job started with requests to sort out password problems.

One such came from a chap who Tim says just couldn't get his password to work.
