I am from just north of Germany, and my grandfather was german blue blood.
My uncle is working as an office manager in Germany.

What he was saying is: People who value their jobs do what a sysadmin says
whether it's brain dead or not.

I can only agree here. You should not do everything you are told without
being critical and think about it. If something is wrong, then complain. I
have been doing this, and it means that more and more decisions goes over
my desk. People do like criticism if it is well considered.

But the sysadms are right. It can easily be considered a trojan (like the
'Good times' virus). And as there are no source available, how can I be
sure it does nothing bad ?

We need some company like IBM to sponsor the cracking effort. To release
the clients from an IBM site. Then it would be taken more seriously, and we
could get out on many work computers where we could otherwise not come.
