Crash, bang, wallop: What a power-down. But what hit the kill switch?

Charles Calthrop

i heard an awesome story about a guy in the dell factory at limerick. He was working on the production line when he pressed the emergency stop button by accident, and caused the entire line to shut down. It caused a huge rumpus as it cost $$$, so much so that someone from Dell HQ flew over to see what had happened, to try to see if there were workarounds they could implement. So this big shot was talking to the operative

'Walk me through exactly what you did' the big shot guy said

'I accidentally pressed the emergency stop button, like this', the guy said. Pressing it again to show him
