Re: Little-league stuff

On a larger scale- a VAX 11/730 ( IIRC) test machine in a little office.

When the aircon failed over the weekend, the disk drive (huge box the size of a washing machine, about 50Mb...) started to squeal. Eventually the disk stopped rotatating, just as we came in.

Fearing the worst, a quick shutdown was in order.

After the AC was fixed, the VAX started up without any complaint and kept running thereafter.

Servers? Wimpy little tin boxes... :)
