My boss is pretty cool. He's got a sense of humor and was, until he started this job, a software developer. A few weeks ago, I installed a Wiki on one of our internal web servers at his request. About once a week, he asks me to make some configuration change to it. I just take this as part of learning how to administer one of these things and it's been a straightforward process. This is a rough transcript of the most recent of those conversations. His name isn't actually Dave, but that's what we'll call him for this post.
Dave: Hey Aaron, can you enable file uploads on the Wiki?
Aaron: Sure. I'll take care of that later today.
... 90 minutes or so later when I get around to it
Aaron: I've got file uploads enabled, but it only allows images by default.
Dave: Can you just make it wide open for any kind of file?
Aaron: I think so. Yep. So what are you after?
Dave: Pointy-haired manager stuff. Word Docs and Excel Sheets...
