Non Accidental Power Interruptions

I worked on a local government ICL 1900 site and the system kept crashing. Over time we noticed a coincidence between the crashes and the presence of a particular operator in the line printer room.

It transpired that this guy had a chip on his shoulder and found he could crash the system by switching the circuit breaker at the rear of the printer off and on.
