I personally never ran the Ascend gear (outside of a setting up a
customer's Ascend Superpipe 95 dual ISDN router one time), but I
the TNT gear doubled as space heaters. I remember one facility we
that had a catastrophic cooling failure and the temperatures went to
levels. Our PM3's happily kept running and never had an issue where
every TNT box in the facility kept rebooting and crashing.

"Exciting" was just the word for Ascends. In the mid 90s, I cured
this excitement by putting my ascends on a socket timer which
rebooted them a couple of times daily. The support load dropped off
substantially due to that.
