There are a few companies that spent money on "bullet-resistant" reception
areas [the purpose has always eluded me] -- when you ask if the loading dock
and all other entrances are similarly reinforced, you get the "no, of course
not!".

I guess the thought process is: basically assume the bad guys will go
through the front door and cooperate with the mantrap.

Then again (bringing this back to EQIX) -- they didn't spend money on
expensive signage, because no one would guess where the door is -- right? So
that's more of a savings than some other companies have/had/whatever.

I'm curious -- did they kick you out for the day, or terminate your contract
and move you out?
