Well, it wasnt a full-speed "fall", more like a "oh FUCK ITS TIPPING OVER

Landed on the foot of the guy who owns the ISP where my machines are
colocated.  This was actually "my" rack - but the machines in it belong
to a friend (I manage them for him).  "my" stuff was already safely in
the back of my Kia Sportage. 8-)

I drove CHad (owner of onr.com) to the closest hospital, where they
determined that his foot wasnt broken (luckily).  Then, I drove across
town (the other guys had loaded up my rack after righting it in the 
meantime), and finished setting up the equipment.

It knocked the bezels off the E250s, but that was the only problem - and
they just popped right back on.

It was this rack, minus the bottom two E250s:


if you notice the logo on it at top-left - this is a Sun-3-era SOLID STEEL
rack. 8-)

I should go take pictures at the new facility this weekend...
