A big box of Kimwipes--to clean up oil on the floor from a leaking disk
drive. Gloves for changing printer ribbons (and digging bits and pieces
out of the machinery). A broom with a very long handle to free the
write rings that some joker tossed up on the light fixtures or hung off
a sprinkler head. A clean shirt and a clip-on tie (in case it gets
caught in something). A few cards to trip the write enable on manual
load drives (just slip it in back of the reel and nudge it. We don't
need no flippin' rings!). A large felt-tip marker to make signs and
mark card decks.
Earplugs. Definitely earplugs.
