The problem of the CFO taking the company checkbook
when he goes to party at his favorite crack house is
a hard one to solve.

Possible solution: have the CFO lock up the checkbook
in the Accounting Dept. office before going out.

(Accounting Dept. office: minimal, up-to-date
workstation with only needed software and minimal
user privileges.  Crack house: recreational PC with
Flash, games, adware, etc.)
