Re: Those were the days, when a computer was really engineering

Oh air-con hell! Back in the day I went out to client site (hospital) to work out why their DG Aviion kept crashing. The temperature in the room (shared with a Strowger exchange) was like nothing I'd ever experienced. They had put a fairly heft portable air-con unit in there but failed to notice that the exhaust hose had cracked... And so they kept it on, expecting the room to somehow magically cool.
