Yeah.. all those calls about a password "not working" so you check and find the account locked out because they've typed the wrong one too many times, so you unlock it and everything works...
It's amazing how upset they get when you suggest they made a typo in their password. Folks, I make hundreds of typos every day, and that's when I *can* see what I'm typing...
This may be getting off topic, but I think you'd have an issue with just laying fibre on the ground. For one thing, you'd have to lay it in the winter, along the ice roads, then it would be exposed to all that traffic.
You'd need to bury it below the frost line (in some cases under the permafrost line).
I remember reading things just like it in the mid-late 90s when NT was "an interesting app server" and "not ready for enterprise deployment" not to mention "not a serious challenger to Novell".
We all know how that one turned out... Maybe I'd better supplement my VMWare chops with a bit of Hyper-V...
Um... Actually the US didn't permanently disable Selective Availability on the GPS system for non-military devices until May 2000. I don't know where the 1991 figure came from.

Icon: Paris, because it's just SO wrong...
My understanding is that in Canada, departmental policies state that no PCs or PC operating systems are permitted for Level 3 secure (Top Secret) and above and must be separated from non-classified systems by a minimum of 2m to ensure no data is leaked by EMI. Additionally, the networks that carry the data must be fibre-optic from end to end.
No classified on Intel, no classified on copper.
