Yes, incredulous IT guy, I can (and did) map a network drive.

BTW Did my workaround work?

Thanks for reminding me to try it.

YES!! It did work. Betsy thanks you effusively. And tomorrow I'll call IT and tell them that they're useless and that the problem is fixed.

I, too, am CAPABLE of doing so. Unfortunately, our network permissions are set up such that I am physically incapable of doing it.

I have, however, trained my IT department not to ask me stupid ass "end users are clueless morons" questions and convinced them that I do, in fact, know what the hell I am doing. They've even stopped trying to argue with me when I tell them one of our people has a corrupted printer driver. *grins*

I'm quite proud of myself.

Well, it's important to remember that 99% of the people they have to interact with can't; that they haven't broken their PC's "cupholder" yet is nothing short of miraculous

Techs don't think you're stupid. Experience has taught them, though to expect the lowest common denomiator and be pleasantly surprised.

Good ones do. The poorest ones react to any sign of competence or knowledge as an affront to their Awesome Priestly Power and react defensively.

"Well, damn, why didn't I know this before so I could get you to do IT stuff when I was too busy to come up here."

I have been. They just get calls from the library a lot less than they used to. But considering I've solved more problems around here than the "technology liaison" librarian, maybe I should consider possibly more lucrative careers. ^_^

The best compliment I ever got was when my manager told me to go map someone else's network drive without previous knowledge that I could.

She was computer savvy enough to observe that I was, too.
