    Nice shade of Cyan that! Magenta might have gone better with the shirt!

    How are the cleaning skills?

    Ouch!

    Managed to get my hands covered in ink on Monday. Took an unhealthy (hides from the H+S police) dose of graffiti remover and about 3 days of scrubbing every chance I got to get rid.

    I hve had an OKI Magenta Cartridge spill out all over me whilst changing it.. the locking lever was shipped in the "open" position so when I tipped it up to insert it, I got covered in toner..
    From the state of my hands and clothes, and the surrounding area, it looked like I had been doing open heart surgery on the printer.....

    I once had a bit of a mishap when planning a timed reboot of one of our servers... I have a batch file that uses the sleep utility and net send to send warning messages around the network before using the shutdown command to reboot. Unfortunately I'd forgotten that the sleep utility wasn't installed on the server I wanted to reboot, so it rebooted a bit quicker than expected!

    I did the EXACT same thing last year with a konica 5570 (I think)... didn't have any spare toner for it and they were desperate to print, so I thought, I'll just give it a shake. It was 9.30AM :-(

    Managed to lock myself out of a cisco switch once and had to get someone from the other side of the world to get into it and 'unlock it'
    That was embarrassing.
    Done the reboot instaed of logging off many times (unfortunately).
    A cracker I did just last year was, we were clearing out some old network cabling out of some switch cab and went to cut a tie wrap with some cutters. Yep cut through the network cables instead(on ladders, full stretch, round the back of the patch panel). Killed that section of the network for a few hours!
    Have you noticed that you somehow just know that you are pressing the wrong keys/it says are you sure and it shouldn't, yet you still press ok?
    You hear this voice in your head scream NNNOOOOO!
    but you just can't stop yourself from doing it.

    Our technician also had an unfortunate incident with the cyan toner in an OKI printer. His new name became Avatar or Papa Smurf thereafter

    Sadly, no photos
