The commercial world is finally waking up to this stuff and actually implementing real control over their environments. It's only taken 10 years of being shouted at by people like me to do it, but they are finally getting the point that not doing it will cost them more on their bottom line in the long run.

    If you don't like working in that environment, get a gig elsewhere. Otherwise learn to live with it, because it is going to become the norm. Is it worth pissing off a client that has brought you back again and again, just because it's a bit inconvienient for you.

      Wasn't aimed at you Simon, was to the OP and a comment in general about people trying to circumvent security. It used to be seen as a bit of a laugh in the office, these days it will get you fired.

        All I am really wanting to do is mess about with some personal code during the pre releases downtime for a couple of hours a day, not write stuxnet 2 or upload internal databases to the Iranian consulate.

        Anyway, ordered a PI and I think I will go with a switch for the keyboard and mouse. Should get a limited dev environment on it.
