It hurts my head to try and reason it out...
Optical drive went out about a month ago. Instead of just grabbing a replacement myself and popping it in- we had to go through IS and wait till the following monday so their technician could install the new drive.
USB ports are failing, and we aren't permitted to install a new USB PCI card. And IS wont install one- we have to wait till corporate gives us a new computer.
For the longest time we just used a laptop from inventory but every time the model was phased out we'd have to replace it and that got rather old. And we aren't allowed to build our own computer to use either, even if it's with our parts or company provided parts.
