Hmm.. yeah we had simular issues at the science park with students.
There was a fad once of students bringing in their old banged up
serial mice and trying to swap them for the M$ mice we had on the uni
Oh and mice balls, of course.
But i dont think our company bothered with disabling ports they just
took out the cdrom drive and locked the case shut really well. They
gave me a box once and i had to drill the lock.
Theres no place like ::1
