Margin mugs: A bank paid how much for a 2m Ethernet cable? WTF!

at a previous job, there was an IBM server that needed to be moved from one computer room to another. It could have been unracked, lifted onto a trolley by a few people, and re-racked in half an hour. IBM's charge? over £2k.

we couldn't move it ourselves as it would have invalidated the support contract.
