Hypothetically, let's say that an employee from CompanyX, a rather large large semi-techie company, sent something they shouldn't have to a competitor.

I can bake a loaf of bread, but I don't know where to buy flour

I am a graduate student who works with a lot of very computationally sophisiticated people. I'm doing okay with the content of my work (which is focused on computational modeling only to a certain degree) and feel comfortable acquiring new high-level skills. But there are a lot of basic skills, vocabulary, and background knowledge that I don't have, and it's slowing me down! What do I need to know, and how do I learn it efficiently? [more inside]

If I have admin access to a server, can I be accused of computer misuse?

I am a photographer. My photographs are currently on a website that I used to work with but have since had a disagreement. I own the copyright to my images and would like the website to remove them. They are being very slow in their response as removing the images will create very negative publicity for them. I have maintained their website for the last 4 years and have full admin access to their dedicated server. If I log in and remove my images, could I be accused of misuse of computers? [more inside]

Are they all going to make fun of me?

So it looks like my iMac G5 hard drive died some time this afternoon while the computer was on and I was not in front of it. Great! I'm still covered by warranty, so there's that. BUT. When the hard drive died... I, err, may have been in the process of downloading porn through BitTorrent. (Nothing illegal, but y'know, it's porn.) Obviously I have to bring this computer in for repair, and will probably have to give the HD to some kind of data-recovery service, and so when some techno-wizard hopefully gets things going again, there that porn file will be, sitting right out on my desktop. This happens all the time, right? Are they going to be scandalized? (I am in NYC, so my guess is no, but...) What level of humiliation or other problems am I looking at here? [more inside]
