You really don't want to do this because the Microsoft systems are
extremely vulnerable to attack when ports 137-139 are open.  People
who know what they're doing can easily get to your entire hard drive,
crash your systems with BSOD, etc.

Government spending?  I don't know what it's all about.  I don't know
any more about this thing than an economist does, and, God knows, he
doesn't know much.
