At 50 a box, Eben's got 450 in his on the home page!

I used to run community IT training courses and would regularly stuff 10 base units, 9 monitors, laptop, projector, hub and all cables, keyboards, mice etc in to a car - it ended up stuffed to the ceiling - never thought to take a picture of it though.

Funny story actually, we got to the store depot and parked right next to the entrance, there was some rich snob that started complaining about it, has he was there first to pick his new big screen, the warehouse workers ignored him and started to put boxes in the car, then the store manager came to chat, we could see smoke coming out of the guys ears wen we left before him. We did spend more money in the computers than in the car.

How many computers in a car?  Sounds like hardware compression to me. (Sorry.)

would make for an interesting insurance claim in a hardware compression situation (read rear ended car)

I always thought that when I was going for EMC testing.

£2k car, £15k computer, 24TB disks

I used to think about two things:

Bandwidth of me driving the 75 minutes home - HUGE, but the latency sucked

Cost of the insurance claim

Made it easier the next day to just drive to the testing facility though

'Single Trip Insurance' is the kind of policy to take out for 'unusual' loads - the content of a lorry moving equipment could be millions -

I once had 19 or 20 20" tv's in the back of my land rover. had to break hard and they all shot forward. two pinned me to the steering wheel and i had to drive down the highstreet until i could pull over and try and get them off me.
