    Lock down all the files!

    There have been numerous posts about folks wanting to "lock down" their models and the content in them. I remember this little tidbit from clientsfromhell.net

    Boss charges into my office furiously, two days after the company site goes live.

    Boss: “Carl just showed me that people can right-click our site and view all our code.”

    Me: “Well, yes, that’s how web browsers work.”

    Boss: “Take the whole thing down, now! I’ll be damned if I’m going to give our competitors all our god-damn code!”


    Replace site with model and code with content and I am sure you can figure out the rest.... Also it is a fun site to read through, as a lot of stories could apply to the AEC world too.

    I recently posted a discussion thread about this. Still dealing with this "lock down our files" nonsense.

    So ridiculous. At least it gives us something to gossip about in the office.
