HR and Pair Programming

Keith Braithwaite posted an interesting comment on the XTC wiki He asked about problems with HR and pair programming.

They have noticed that our XP developers all log on to the development workstations (which are reserved exclusively for pairing on development tasks) using the same ID. They find this unacceptable. Their preferred solution is for the “driver” to be logged in, and then log out to allow the “navigator” to log in each time the keyboard changes hands. We find this unacceptable, for obvious reasons.

Imagine having to log out everytime you switch keyboards? It amazes me the “problems” that people make for themselves.
