I know I'm being a freaking idealist.

My tool bag carries all my required sets of screws and cage nuts.  Works
great until the first level guy decides to borrow something and not put
it back.

Thanks,
Erik

And since the racks usually come with the cage nuts, maybe the colo
should just provide them.

they do? nonono, you have to buy those seperately :P

racks don't even come with "doors" and "side walls" etc by default
*grin*

you have to buy them seperately anyway if you want to make sure your 
company uses all the same ones, so you don't have to take them out again

and replace them because some fukkin idiot put the wrong size into the 
hole as it "came with something else"


Thanks,

couplers so one can mix-and-match
2. Velcro wraps.
3. cage nuts/bolts

USB A/B/Mini/Micro/Nano/Pico/etc/etc/etc cables
Spare parts (common sizes of RAM/Disks/Fans)
New servers (probably don't fit in a vending machine, but in that dark place where you need a new box *TONIGHT*, this 
could be a godsend)
Generically sized hoodie or sweatshirt.  Datacenters can get really cold if you're in there longer than expected.
Advil/Ibuprofen/Generic OTC Pain Reliever
Cisco Console Cables

Outside of a vending machine, I've also seen a few facilities that have normal vending machines (including instant 
coffee dispensers).  This has, on more than one occasion, kept me standing long enough to get the jorb done.

if a pop doesn't come with a hotel with a bar in front of the door, 
or at least around the corner, and preferably free beer, coffee, etc in 
the cantina as well, we're not a customer of theirs haha.

headace tables are good..

but then again, with noise protectors you would not get the headace in the 
first place :P

and a buttwarmer to sit on the floor (or maybe even a chair!)

Serial cables, DB9 -> USB converts and all of the various vendor adapters to make it work.

WTSHTF I'm always digging through my gear looking for the right serial adapter.

Duct tape, paper clips and chewing gum.  If it was good enough for McGyver it is good enough for me.
