I'd always wondered if that button really worked, given how screwed up the
power situation was in our network control center.  The alarm repair guy
answered that question - knocked the guard off and managed to jam it against
the button in the process of trying to catch it.  Turns out it only worked
on 2/3 of the machines in the room.  And then we realized that no one there
knew how to reset the system.

Been there, too.  The building housing all of the off-base connectivity
always had the worst generator.

Only fix for that sort of thing is multiple-site redundancy.  That costs
money, though - and takes a lot of effort to do right.
