Beaten Hardware

There’s a funny discussion over at Slashdot where people relate tales of hardware that has survived a beating. My favorite quote:

The original VT-100 was top-rack dishwasher safe. No, really – that was the standard DEC repair instructions in case someone spilled something into a keyboard. Place the keyboard key-side down on the top rack of a dishwasher, normal wash cycle, air dry.
