Re:thump a telly...

Worked in mainframe testing for a bit after graduating from University. The terminals at first were random logic built from ICs on 3-4 boards. To save costs they did not use gold plated edge connectors.

So when they started acting up. The first level "fix" was to give the case a fist thump on top above the cards. That would work most times. But some of the terminals did develop a noticeable dent in the steel top.
