    Smile What Was the Most Interesting Place You've Ever Worked in?

    Back in the day when I was working for Unisys, I once replaced a monitor in the control tower at LaGuardia Airport in NY. I hung around for an hour or so looking at stuff. Quite interesting.

    In my first year as a tech, one of my first regular accounts was Macomb Oakland Center. This was my first visit.

    The copier was in the intake department, right off the lobby. Three feet away there is a room with wooden benches, and metal locked door, and corrugated steel over the window openings.

    So I'm turning the screwdriver, and I hear a voice from behind me say, "Hey pal, got a cigarette?" I turn to tell this guy in the room "Sorry, no, I don't smoke."

    A few minutes later he speaks up again, "Hey man, I need a cigarette!" I say "Sorry, I can't help you."

    I go back to turning the screwdriver. Then I notice the guy is shaking the door as hard as he can. Remember I'm only three feet away. I remember thinking (I hope that door is well constructed...).

    Then he's blubbering and making a hell of a racket, and beating his face up against the corrugated steel, and his blood is running down the outside of the door. There is another door across the room, and two huge guys in white lab coats burst through the door, cross the lobby, and open up the cage.

    After some scuffling the two big guys subdue the smaller bleeding guy, and man-handle him across the lobby and down the hall. The little guy is still making a tremendous racket, and squirming like a weasel. All this just a few feet from me.

    That is when I figured out that Macomb Oakland Center is the 'nuthouse'. =^..^=

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.

    In the mid 60s I installed 3 Vari Typer branding machines.
    These m/cs had very high temperature character fonts.
    The operater would stretch moderately some plastic tubing into
    the machine. The hot type fonts burned numbers and characters
    onto the plastic tubing, then the tubing was ready a wiring
    tech would slip the printed piece of plastic over all the wires
    to enable them to be identified.
    These machines were in a nuclear reactor, and we could not leave
    the reactor until we had been tested for any nuclear on us
    or our parts cars.
    I still believe that these tests were being done only to tease us.
    And we never did glow in the dark.

    I've met Freddie Heineken, the beer tycoon, (installed a small fax in his office) and I've installed some faxes at the office of the queen of the Netherlands.

    One of the cool places I as able to work in and there have been many, was a place called Angles in Long Beach, Ca. Angles was a topless bar.

    You would make sure they were towards the end of the day and some of the other techs would show up. no cover and they always were good for a pitcher or 3...

    We have some cash registers at a topless truck stop on I-95. It is the kind of place where you would give the girls money to put their clothes back on.
