You never worked at Cardima.  Cardima had all relay racks in the machine
room because the people who ordered them and put them in didn't know any

To be fair, MOST of what was in them was switches and routers.  But
there was at least a couple of Ultras in there, and a few other boxen.
Nothing really big, fortunately.  I have bigger and beefier hardware
here at home than Cardima had.
