That time Windows got blindsided by a ball of plasma, 150 million kilometres away

Back in the early 2000's, I was fortunate to spend some time aboard a brand new, state of the art cruise liner. Before the maiden voyage, the IT manager took great pride in showing us around the ship paying special attention to the modern IT facilities including some PC's in the (get rid of your) kids club area. These PC's were installed in special cupboards that locked the base unit away, recessed the monitors so only the keyboards and mice were exposed and had kiosk mode like software to stop them being messed with.

When the ship was back in port, we were asked to go onboard and address a couple of issues and we asked the IT manager how things had gone. Apparently everything was great up until the kids discovered they could remove the balls from the mice and then throw them overboard ....
