Unfuck the Leopard Dock

After a couple of days with leopard, I got sick of the new dock. I turned up a fix after poking around, and realizing that side-mounting the dock made it not suck as much, and dumped the 3D crap.

From a missive to my Über(6x)-Boss

It is my belief that CIS needs to review its policies about log maintenance, use tracking, and data retention in order to better protect our users and the integrity of our network from organizations that have hijacked the DMCA and the notion of copyright.
