I believe it is just a hazard of working for a large
organisation. All the computers are ring fenced to "prevent"
foreign code which could contain virii etc. from infecting
the site and somebody (who probably does not work there
anymore) put a blanket veto on shareware and freeware. The
perpetrator may have left but the veto remains and is
rigidly enforced. I will just have to be content with using
calmira at home.
