  ah well... stories like that are true indeed. I personally carried a
  Sun IPX from one security area to one another. The "funny" part
  starts when you know that it wasn't in the papers of area #1 (noone
  would have ever cared if I carried it away) but it went into the
  papers of area #2. The bad thing is that area #2 was of higher
  security and the IPX by now has been probably also melted/shredded -
  although it most likely was never used for anything else except a
  software demo. It just happened to be in the wrong place.

  Although it was "just" an IPX I still feel bad for this whole thing.
  Perhaps that's why I keep telling it again, and again and again

  Thanks for listening to an old script,
