Minneapolis -- Workers at Minnesota Energy Solutions LLC have had to adjust to a new procedure this week. It now requires the five digit employee number, project code and personal password to make copies. The password must have a number and a capital. Employees tried to save a dummy code the first day, with the project as Copy Machine and the other codes saved on the machine. Accountants soon caught on to that and made the IS department add new security to the machine.
On Thursday they ran out of paper and tried to use the hole punched paper in the back closet. But the machine rejected that paper as not appropriate for most projects.
It also ran out of paper on printing out the accounting reports. Accountants resorted to distributing the report on burned DVDs.
