    Default Trade fairs part 2

    Childish and done many times before I know, but it was fun grilling security vendors wearing this thing. Only person who questioned it was a usher at the entrance to the caravan fair in the halls next to this god awful endeavour.

    Getting onto the terrorism watch list for a bit of fun seems a high price for said fun.

    Have you noticed any dodgy characters following you since? High fiving MI5 always goes down well if you confront them. If you used a Saddam Hussein badge they're likely to leave you hanging though.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    I do stuff like this in all seriousness - interesting that you mention Sadam Hussein, he is my go to when visiting data centres (looking at you Rackspace).

    This stuff happens quite often. I remember a French CIO lighting up a Cigarette next to the diesel tanks for the backup generators at a telco NOC during a saftey briefing. When we did the debrief, staff were too intimidating to say anything to him.

    Act like you belong.

    What is the problem in lighting up a cigarette near a diesel tank?

    Cigarettes give you cancer, that's what's wrong with it.
