I Solemnly Swear I Am Up To No Good

My coworkers and I have a category of equipment, creation, or hack called “I solemnly swear I am up to no good.”

Thanks goes out to Messrs. Mooney, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs.

Permanent entries so far in this category include the power draw-measuring extension cord with all the wires separated, and the extension cord I have with two male three-pronged plugs. Totally necessary, once.

Temporary entries have been such things as a 100 foot Ethernet cable across the data center floor, or the server pulled forward on its rails, running, case open, with drives sitting wedged in the top, along with a power supply for them, extension cord across the floor to an outlet.

Sometimes the fastest way out of a bad situation is with something that’s an even worse idea. Of course, you could just not get in the bad situation in the first place, but what fun is that?

(as an aside, I saw a bumper sticker the other day that said “I Trust Snape.”)

  1. I’m familiar and begrudgingly fond of both your permanent entries. Although, there’s a reason the latter is commonly referred to as a “widow maker” ;]
