I thought that Everyone only included known users.  Like, if I bring in
a computer from home and setup the NIC to see the network here at work
RAYSHOMECOMPUTER\Ray isn't part of Everyone on
WORKDOMAIN\RaysWorkComputer, is it?  If I shared something on
RaysWorkComputer and give Everyone full control, I don't think that
RAYSHOMECOMPUTER\Ray would have access to it, just because the computers
are on the same physical network.
