I merely pointed to a washing-machine-sized disk drive and was sternly reminded by the very nervous guide that the slightest vibration can cause these finicky disks to crash.“Perturbed by what I felt was an undeserved scolding, I pointed a second time — to a member of our computer science faculty who had planted his very ample behind on top of one of the disk drives.“The look on our tour guide’s face was priceless, but that brought the tour to an abrupt end.“No damage was done, unless you count the tour guide’s near heart attack.”Point your true tale of IT life in Sharky’s direction.
