9 Types of Users: Taskmaster

Taskmaster: "Well, this is a file in MacWrite. Do you know how I can upload it to MUSIC, transfer it over to UNIX from there, download it onto an IBM, convert it to WordPerfect, and put it in three-column format?"

Advantages: Bold new challanges.

Disadvantages: Makes one wish to be a garbage collector.

Symptoms: An inability to keep quiet. Strong tendencies to make machines do things they don't want to do.

Real Case: One user tried to get a support person to find out what another person's E-mail address was even though the user didn't know his target's home system, account name, or real name.
