I love the old stories like that. Mine was when I worked in a distribution facility for a textile manufacturer. They only received products during the day, but picked and shipped at least 2 shifts a day. Well the conveyor systems where all run by computers that were networked with a Token "Broken" ring network. Unfortunately, they would kill power to the receiving portion of the building by shutting off all of the breakers in the receiving office. Including the one that stated, DO NOT TURN Off, with tape and a metal cover over the breaker. Invariably, this would happen about 20 minutes after I left the building for the evening. Once you shut off the repeater, it would then take the entire network down, (even after bringing the repeater back up) because our Novell Servers would beacon like crazy until restarted.
