Like all of you, I try to convert colleagues and IT guys whenever I can, but failed lamentably up to now.

My job is not at all IT related (teaching and managing and the School of Public Health of UofMontreal). Yet, I am sometime savvier than some of our IT technicians. The other day, I had this issue and called technical support. I told the guy what I did on command prompt and ZTree to solve the issue. Of course, he didn't know what was Ztree, but I was a bit shocked when he asked "What's a command prompt?"... Sigh! (And in the end, I solved the issue myself because the guy couldn't figure out by himself.)

As for more competent users and technicians, they know what I can do with ZTree and are easily impressed, but none actually tried the wonder.

Couldn't even convince my son who is becoming a real geek with computers.
