I had a thought this morning of all the funny and weird ways the people in IT used to relieve boredom or tedium while on the job.

A few I remember:

- After hours, one of the Help Desk/Telecom techs used to dial-up to one of those '1-900' sex lines and then put the entire conversation out over the intercom.

- We had two of those power pallet jacks for the stockroom. We used to have races with them up and down the hallways outside of the Data Center.

Any other funny or weird stories?
