Given the existence of water guns, you shouldn't allow anyone else into the entire CoLo. :-)

Q: What!  Are you crazy? I'd never let a stranger into my cage!
A: Huh, neither would I, but some people are less paranoid than us and / or
know and trust me."

  I wouldn't allow my wife in my cage let alone a stranger and I hope my
colo would deny you both as well!!! I suppose this may be useful for some as
there have been two responses to your initial posting however, we use locked
cabinets and cages for a reason. I can appreciate wanting to return the
trust and community to the industry even though the outlook looks bleak on
your behalf.

Hi all,

This is a mail that I have been meaning to send ever since I moved back
the NoVA area, but have only gotten around to now...

Many years ago I used to provide emergency, smart hands type assistance
those in need, but had to give this up when I moved out of the area.
I'm back and am willing to start doing this again....

This is primarily for those cases where you would normally have to fly
someone out to have them replace a line-card or two, hook up a few
maybe swap a disk in an array, etc. This is not for those cases where you
simple need someone to push the reset button, nor for rebuilding your
cage from scratch...

Anyway, if you have gear here and think that you might need to take me up
on this, drop me a mail and I'll give you my direct contact info...

If you like this idea, and are willing to also provide this sort of thing
to the community (either in this, or in another area), please let me know
I'll look into setting up a website / mailing list / something...

What Warren said. I'm in the Chicagoland area.
