Security isn't always good

Can I just say what a pain in the ass it is to convert a Windows single-user application to a multi-user networked application with a master-slave setup due to ridiculous “security” bans in Windows like not being allowed to share your Program Files folder over the network? Seriously, if you don't see me post here over the next 72 hours it's because I've finally cracked, moved to Goa, and am spending the rest of my life learning how to play the flute on the beach. I kid you not.

If someone knows a quick and easy way to allow that folder to be shared (I literally want to share my entire C:\ drive as a single unit), drop me an IM, because if it can't be, I'm going to have to handle it as separate shares which will mean a lot more code in an already monstrous (about 10,000 lines of code) and ancient program… Ha ha, good news for Phil I suppose because if I can't get this done today he gets another day off while I fiddle with this all! I think I'm going to put some black plastic over my windows to block out the action and screaming coming from outdoors…

In any case, I should have a BME update posted soon.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
