Actually what's disapointing is how little most electricians seem to know 
about NEC requirements for data centers. I had an electrician tell me I 
didn't want our new ups connected to our EPO switch because if someone hit 
the button it would turn off. This was followed  but much shouting and 
waving on my part.

  In Dr. Johnson's famous dictionary patriotism is defined as the last

  inferior lexicographer I beg to submit that it is the first.
