Want to torment your network administrator? Step 1: Tell him to grant you full-control access to a folder, while setting your file-level access to "no access" for some inconsequential file in the folder. Step 2: Watch his eyes bulge as you delete that file. Few know it, but for POSIX compliance, full-control directory access allows a user to delete a file he's not even allowed to read. If you work with NT, consider yourself warned.
