If you're working in an old-school building with offices and desks, and not a cube with tailored fittings, it's happened to you before.

The stack of documents on your desk builds to a towering crescendo, and the one or several on top whoosh down behind the desk, necessitating a trip under the desk [if you're lucky, and there's access], or worse.

But if you've installed DocumNets, the patented Media Safety Device, there's not room for the evasive document to go far enough to be out of sight of the desktop.

[With thanks to RayfordSteele for his inspirational anno in the idea linked below]

       words can't describe how bad of an idea this is....might as well have a special net for everytime your pencil rolls off your desk too....

       [thefullrob].. erm.. I quite liked it, this happens quite often. if you can't say something constructive, say nothing

P.S. Pencilnet, there's an idea.

       He's only miffed because I referred to him a [freaking new-writer] on his idea [No More Swears], which anno he promptly deleted and went to see which idea of mine disgusted him the most.   

       No offense taken, [thefullrob]. I extend the halfbaked olive branch loaf of peace towards you, in the hopes that you'll accept.   

       Thanks, [neilp].

       I keyboarded the word " documnets " again today and remembered this idea.

       History repeats itself - I'm currently engaged to ride herd on some folks with three hundred plus documents to update, and I typed documnets and thought of this.
