I'll bet that was a bundle'o'fun in a big colo facility ... row upon row of
blabbering boxes, kvetching about one thing and another, day in and day out,
like a bunch of chickens.  Didn't Sun learn anything from those talking cars
of the Seventies?  They were cool for about two days, then you wanted to
know the location of two things: the voice warning system control box, and
your .357.
