    Hope the H&S bods have done a risk assesment on working in the dark, sounds a bit like a recipe for disaster to me...

    Not all Datacenter's have windows above ground. Why would this be any different. How do you think the people like the bunker get on? Office space will be above ground, thankfully we don't have our engineers on the dc floor 24x7.

    Tell that to a certain DC provider starting with T and ending in Y that has all the lights set to auto switch off every 15 mins... plenty of bruised parts falling over kit when the lights go out 20+ times a night :-(

    Not very 'green' to have to have the lights on when the sun's up
