Actually, I was talking about how you brought your own laptop with you with 
a server already running on it so you could prove that you knew what you 
were doing.  I don't remember the exact details, but you posted on a list 
(acb-l?) a while ago about how you got hired once they could access the 
server running on your laptop and could see that you were able to set up 
servers and knew how to make computers work.
