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 :-)
Masscomp sold a machine
like this once.
