Pics of Illuminati Online's Facility
This is true. I worked at IO from 2000-2001 (shortly before they moved to Prism) and this was when Gov. Bush moved his locked server cabinet (the only one in the server room) pending his announcement to run for Prez.
Here's some pics of the IO facility:
I've got gigabytes of logs showing the servers on the verge of exploding, as it was a daily occurrence requiring CMA, and all kinds of photos and other tidbits found around the network. Ahh, memories! A sizeable chunk of my MP3 collection came from perusing what other employees had Napstered. ;)
Interesting fact: IO had a telnet server for customers to access a legacy account management interface. When you logged in (as guest), the shell provided was Lynx, instead of bash, because the interface was really web-based. IO forgot to restrict Lynx, so you could still type "g - space - period" and drop down to the filesystem. IO utterly failed to police file permissions, so numerous /home/~username/html_docs/ directories were browseable, and files were downloadable. Someone at Prism seems to have fixed this in the years after IO was re-hosted there.
IO was, on one hand, a pretty fun and cool place to work, but on the other hand, management and security was a seriously cruel joke.
I'm game, if any old IO employees/customers want to get together for a meet-up and Fnord about old times. :D
