I remember being on a placement with Xerox (Late 80's) & one Engineer I was paired with told the story of how he drove in the pouring rain from Swindon - Wales, parked up at the first car park with a space, lugged his network diagnostic kit through town in the pouring rain, into the building, up 4 flights of stairs soaked to the skin.

Sets up his kit & notes the effected equipment has the same MAC address as a piece of kit in London on their network.

Swaps out card & lugs everything down the stairs & back to his car for the drive back to Swindon.....Did I mention it was pouring with rain?
