Or in my case, it's more between the "quick fix" and the "week+ of work". One of the banes of having a non-technical direct report is that I have no shield against this... except my own wiliness, of course. "Always be Scotty; never be Geordi".

The new job is too new, but the last last job was explicitly about being the resource for "we don't know how to do this, us there anyway the computer can help". An astonishing number of requests boiled down to "can the computer read my mind?"

"I'm sorry, we haven't implemented the telepathy add-on for this language". ;-)

The Scotty-Geordi question is unfortunately all too true, even for slightly less technical work. Good luck with your wiliness (and thanks again for the help).
