The CTO was giving me and some others a quick datacenter tour. As we were exiting one floor, the new NOC mgr moved passed me and commented to his new boss that putting an uncovered big red button next to the door was just too inviting... and he proceeded to push it as he asked what it does. :-) All the lights went out, the large room went quiet. The CTO cursed and rushed out to figure out what to do next. The rest of us returned to the NOC... where the monkeys were still powered up and playing games, not even aware that anything had happened. Needless to say, things changed drastically shortly thereafter. -Jim P.
