- IT guys have been known to pull overnighters just to move a slew of servers from one perfectly good server rack enclosure cabinet to another server rack enclosure cabinet just because it’s shiny and new. — We actually told the student workers (who had no clue as to what they were) that these were their new cubicles–we needed to save some office space for a new programmer coming onboard. They’re actually quite comfortable! The also make a great place to change if you have one of those Superman issues.
- Have you seen the look in a child’s eyes on Christmas when he’s gotten that perfect shiny red fire engine? — Little boys don’t actually asks for these Tonka delights anymore, but just indulge me for a moment. Well, that’s the same reaction and look you’ll get from an IT guy when Dell delivers a bright, shiny new server, workstation, or laptop to the delivery door. An IT guy can’t wait to get it out of the box and play with it! Ooo’ing and ahh’ing the whole time! Really!
