Usually they are such well trained dogs that they are getting 
paid a lot of money to provide a valuable service.  If that 
service is not provided, their paychecks aren't either.  That 
is why they are paranoid.  System administrators are easy to 
find.  Good ones aren't.

Doesn't matter if rc-64 IS changing passwords.  If they say no, 
and they are truly in charge, don't do it.  You'll just piss 
them off.  They are in charge of those computers, and unless 
you own those computers and pay them to maintain those 
computers, you do what they say.

>Don't let people throw around their titles. EVER.

Sysadmin is a title.  The experience and responsibilities that 
go with it is much more.
