I still chuckle about this one!

This was similar to a former $work.  We had just converted the room from 
a former tenants MVS datacentre, to a Unix datacentre.  The 
motor/generator had just been pulled out, and replaced with a little 
solid-state 35KVA MGE UPS.  The UPS had a 
-illuminated-bright-red-epo-button.  At the time, we had no tape 
autoloader, to we would take turns going in on the weekend to change the 
tapes on the servers.  It was the CIO's turn to change the tapes.  He 
took his son with him into the DC. The "Big Red Switch"  was enticing  
to a young fella. 

I think $boss spent the rest of the day typing fsck.....

Next week - there was a  plexi cover over the EPO.....
