We bought three V890s at one time, and the VAR didn't even realize that they
wanted 208! We had already owned 280Rs, 480s, and 490s so I hadn't even
thought to look it up.

  When they arrived and we unpacked them, we all just stood around staring at
the weird-ass plugs on the power cords and blinking slowly for a minute before
the realization hit.  :7)

  Eventually I think we just had the campus electricians pull a bunch of extra
circuits under the raised floor so we could line them up in a row to look
