Bite your tongue. By the time you finish school it may happen once a week,
the way things are going. The Internet is full of more or less active
controls and other things with a mind of their own and many idealist
engineers connect microcomputer-controlled household applications to the
web with frenezy and very little understanding of the implications and
security/access control issues involved. The worst thing I saw in this
direction was a guy in Canada who was trying to interface equipment in a
nuclear experiments lab with a CGI script, for online access by
students/staff, and hoped for the passwords to be enough security. I hope
he got to talk with someone professional meanwhile. Sheesh.
