Comment Re:Crashed the Uni Mainframe Once (Score 1) 377 377

LOL. When I started our Uni mainframe was, umm, not very secure (ICL 1906 with GEORGE 4, yay.) We crashed that thing every few weeks. Whenever you did something naughty and the terminal displayed a flashing status at the bottom saying it was waiting for a reply it was time to run from the terminal room because two minutes later one of the operators would come in and look who sat at terminal number X.
