Always on the last day before a vacation

In honor of today's Custodian-with-a-floor-polisher induced network outage at Hartford Adult Education (North), I have dusted off a dear favorite of mine: the Random Network Damage Table. Grab a ten-sider and you too can play along with the gallant geeks of MHIS as we fight to keep the network running!

Alternate version of #1 on the SCDT:

Power cut by maintenance guy who pushed the button to open the door...what do you mean it's the server room EPO button? (Actual event)

BWHAHAHAHAHAH!

...We did that to ourselves on move-in day at our present building. That's when we discovered that the EPO buttens -- despite being placarded PULL TO ACTIVATE -- were PUSH buttons.

All of the items on the SCDT have happened during my tenure in Hartford. Most fun, of course, is being waxed out of a building. Or, for extra points waxed in, as happened to two of my guys in 2003. One does not tread on a custodian's freshly waxed floor and live; all they could do was cool their heels in the MDF for 45 minutes until the floors dried.
