Oh, give the guy a break:  Red, Black, White...it is all very confusing!

My most serious problem has been with the computer room UPS begin shutdown
accidentally, dropping a half-dozen raid servers.  Many TBs of data were
endangered.  I might be able to forgive them if it only happened once, but
I've needed to force myself to stop counting events because doing so
interferes with my ability to properly suppress homocidal urges.

Seriously, one would think that a Darwinian effect would kick in at some 
point and cull the electrical service hurd.  My observations (and others 
here as well) seem to dispute that.
