I wish it was an April Fools joke
My co-worker was suddenly having all these problems on his new MacPro..... →
Dumbass: "It won't let me do this, it won't let me do that. I can't save this, I can't open that."
Me: "Did you change anything?"
Dumbass: "Yes, the permissions on a folder."
Me: "Which folder?"
Dumbass: "Macintosh HD. I changed the permissions to something and then I clicked apply to enclosed items
. After that, it started acting funny."
Me: "I hate you."
This is the same guy who put his system folder in the trash and it took me a while to find the problem and fix it. That was easy to fix once I found out what happened. This is going to test me though.
I pushed ctrl-option-apple-8 and left his computer. I told him this was caused by his dicking around with file permissions.
