The most annoying sound in the world was a room full of VT52's
beeping during a Vax shutdown.

Sounded like a room full of five-year-olds giving me the raspberry.

      Three things never anger: First, the one who runs your DEC,
      The one who does Field Service and the one who signs your check.
