Yeah... if you don't properly discharge the CRT (either with a  
screwdriver and cable or a CRT discharge tool) you can die.  25kV is  
not nice going through your body.  They're supposed to have bleeder  
resistors but those don't always work.


and remember: a CRAY is the only computer
that runs an endless loop in just four hours ...  --Snarfed from a forum
