Not related really, but in the late '90s we had a Sun 10,000 box when
they were very new. Early one morning three well dressed guys with
carryalls, we were next to an airport so not unusual, blagged their way
into what they thought was an unmanned computer room. The lone operator
saw them and ducked out the back and hit the panic button. When the
boys in blue arrived said three were pulling boards out of the Sun.
Unfortunately they had not switched it off...............
Our insurance would not pay out because "nothing had been stolen" and
Sun refused to maintain the machine on the grounds of "who the heck
knows *what* might be damaged".
