Amusements in small ways.
We have a backup server, and a whole load of tapes in it.
Recently, because ... well it's useful for troubleshooting and stuff, I wrote a set of scripts that 'did test things'. Like, loading the same tape in each drive, and checking they all got the same volume label.
That kind of thing.
Anyway, I could have used an arbitrary random tape to do this, but it amused me to pick on a particular number. So I picked on tape '666'.

My workmate just yesterday, was a little bit creeped out at just how often that number was showing up in our logs. I didn't tell him why.

Trust you... We've still got the server here that tells you to "F' off, I'm a squirrel" when it powes on. :-)
