Its impressive. I saw a demo of this at a network show and they were picking
random failures and doing them to servers. Sort of spin the dial - power fail
so off one went and one it came again. They apparently ended the show by
flattening a compaq server with an anvil while the other continued - alas
I missed that bit.
