So my boss just asked for a document

on what Active Directory is. Wish I knew a way to get a job making $150k a year and not know a single thing about the department I'm managing, or even how the company works.

I have seen it more then once (Even worked at a place where I saw it first hand) when the person in question knows somebody at the top of the food chain.

Re: So my boss just asked for a document

Dood, I get the feeling like he needs to give this doc to others and is deligating to you to put it together. He prolly doesn't really need it for himself, and doesn't want to write it himself. Do your best on it as you never know where your next job will come from.

Re: So my boss just asked for a document

Here, print this out and hand it to him:

Main Entry: ac·tive
Pronunciation: 'ak-tiv
Function: adjective
Etymology: Middle English, from Middle French or Latin; Middle French actif, from Latin activus, from actus, past participle of agere to drive, do -- more at AGENT
1 : characterized by action rather than by contemplation or speculation
2 : producing or involving action or movement
3 a of a verb form or voice : asserting that the person or thing represented by the grammatical subject performs the action represented by the verb <hits in "he hits the ball" is active> b : expressing action as distinct from mere existence or state
4 : quick in physical movement : LIVELY
5 : marked by vigorous activity : BUSY <the stock market was active>
6 : requiring vigorous action or exertion <active sports>
7 : having practical operation or results : EFFECTIVE <an active law>
8 a : disposed to action : ENERGETIC <took an active interest> b : engaged in an action or activity <an active club member> c of a volcano : currently erupting or likely to erupt -- compare DORMANT 2a, EXTINCT 1b d : characterized by emission of large amounts of electromagnetic energy <an active galactic nucleus>
9 : engaged in full-time service especially in the armed forces <active duty>
10 : marked by present operation, transaction, movement, or use <active account>
11 a : capable of acting or reacting : reacting readily <active nitrogen> b : tending to progress or to cause degeneration <active tuberculosis> c of an electronic circuit element : capable of controlling voltages or currents d (1) : requiring the expenditure of energy <active calcium ion uptake> (2) : functioning by the emission of radiant energy <radar is an active sensor>
12 : still eligible to win the pot in poker
13 : moving down the line : visiting in the set -- used of couples in contredanses or square dances
- active noun
- ac·tive·ly adverb
- ac·tive·ness noun

Main Entry: directory
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural -ries
Etymology: Middle English directorie guide, from Medieval Latin directorium, from neuter of Late Latin directorius directorial, from Latin dirigere
1 a : a book or collection of directions , rules, or ordinances b : an alphabetical or classified list (as of names and addresses)
2 : a body of directors

Therefore, an active directory is a moving book.
Hope this helps.

Print him out a copy of the original X.500 RFC. That'll shut him up . . .
