What technology goofs in movies bug you? What problems could have been addressed with the right Solarwinds product?
(Can we make the LEM send a "Restart the generators and restrain the velociraptors" active response?)

That actually did exist on the IRIX platform. It's called FSN. It was never intended to be a file system manager replacement. If she were a true UNIX geek all she would need is the cli anyway
