I had a bit of a problem in the data centre last week. I had left my USB console adapter for the MacBook at home.
I took a couple of turns around the data centre and found a DEC VT420 terminal in a cupboard or a discard pile. Put it onto the crash cart and scrounged around for some older cables.
The look on the data centre managers face as I configured his network with the 20 year old DEC terminal ?
