Hmm? The banks, insurance companies and similar sites _I've_ worked
in reserved the image for public areas -- the computer rooms not
coming under that heading. The computer rooms at Prudential, Merrill
and the Federal Reserve Bank of NY (to give recent examples) are about
as showy as an impound lot. Now some of them _do_ have things like
control centers with lots of screens showing different stuff that the
PHBs will escort tourists past, the floors of those rooms are
carpeted. (And of course, the screens are just for show, since the
important data is going into logfiles and the critical alerts are
going forth via pagers and email).
