Re: And who do you cal...
I agree, to a point. Doubling commodity hardware cost is likely going to end up cheaper than paying for tier one storage. Add to that the possibility of running your second (spare) system for archive or near-line storage requirements that does not require 24x7 availability and you will be smiling all the way to the bank, and to your performance appraisal. Plan, and get rid of that box!
Re: And who do you cal...
Who do you usually call?
I believe that if you build the system yourself at least you will know what's potting; with your Tier 1 brand chances are you wont. If your vendor then tells you its going to cost or it can't be fixed, you nod and say yes. Roll your own, if you're like me and you firmly believe you can do it better than the dude in the (select storage vendor name and insert here) t-shirt you'll see that with a bit of planning and some courage you can do it better, more stable, cheaper, faster and more secure, but you have to roll up your sleeves, not just issue a purchase order...

And the French?
I've seen so many Top Gear episodes where the French are mocked, often quite a bit more "mischievous" than the comments on Mexico.
Why beer? I'm off to the pub to find a Mexican with a sense of humor.

If the tricorder also uses visual sensors as suggested by Disco-Legend-Zeke, it may be more accurate to describe it as a sensor for the Kerr effect due to the combined sensing of electromagnetic and optical signals. A name change may then be appropriate: Kerr Field Detector, or K-FED...
What should not be lost here is that if this sim is entirely accurate, the components, and well, citizens of the sim may indeed be blessed with access to the Matrix trilogy to ensure that the historical makeup of the simulation is accurate. Indeed it would be a strange realisation for them if they wake up one day to discover they are components in a simulation watching a bizarrely realistic movie about people that are components in a simulation...
Are they just shy?
I aggree with the Vicar. If you're not a Christian why would you want a Vicar there in the first place? I'm sure this is related to some shyness or a a stigma that requirees you to at least look Christian to your family at the time of a burial.
For me, no vicar and no Tina Turner. I want to get stuck in the oven to the soothing sounds of AC/DC's "Higway to Hell"...
