like this once.
Masscomp did a lot of things. They produced a machine which required an engineer to come out twice a month to shift everything around on the backplane until it worked again; they instituted such user friendly features as a restore command which couldn't restore directories with "too many" entries; and in the interests of their users made the root directory world writeable so that "rm /*" by a prankish luser would actually work (luckily they didn't think of rm -r). I once filed something like 30 bug and security reports in one day. I heard nothing until Masscomp were taken over several years later, at which point is was my pleasure to inform the caller that the machine was in the skip. Happy days :-)
