I have, on occasion been away from my laptop and gotten the call to go to the colo and deal with XYZ hardware problem

colo was between my present location.
In such cases, I will occasionally stop by the colo without going home to retrieve the laptop. 90% of the time it
works out OK. 10% of the time I end up leaving the colo, going home, retrieving the laptop and returning to the colo.
Obviously, if there was a loaner laptop available for a $15 rental in the colo as described, it would probably be
worth $15 to me and/or my organization to avoid the delay and bother of the round-trip between colo and home.
Yeah done that a few times.. Now all our colo sites have a kit with laptop (that boots win 7, XP and Linux) serial USB
things, USB ethernet things and that has a DVD/cd burner and a stock of blanks and a 3G dongle thing.
I.e. everything I have ever had to go home/office/nearest-shop for..
So now when our guys to go colo, they can usually take anything and have most things they need there already.
Now we need to nail them down so people DON'T BRING THEM BACK TO THE OFFICE.
