A direct quote from Office Space [] . Pretty much required watching for anyone in IT or anyone who works in a cube-farm...

Long story short: We have a fax/printer/copier in the office that has been nothing but a pile of grief since a lightning strike took out all but the copier function, which was always a big PITA even before the incident. Anyway, we all hate the machine, but since I'd bought a new toner drum just before the "downgrade" I insisted we use that up before we junk it.

Well, whaddya know, this is the toner drum THAT WILL NOT DIE. It recently showed signs of being almost near the end, but we already had one false alarm on that front 2 months ago, so I'm not holding my breath.

Either way, I promised my staff that when the day finally comes, we will take a little field trip with the machine and a baseball bat real soon. I'm hoping to video it and put it on Youtube.

When you guys take the machine out to pasture make sure to wear eye protection to protect you from the inevitable flying debris.

Heck, if more machines die you could off each of them differently. Blanket party, thrown from bridge, bunjie jump from bridge with solid rope, drag behind car, encase is cement "shoes" and drop off of local pier (don't film that one), fire, gunshot, shotgun and electrocution.

Film them and we will watch.
