How do _you_ move equipment? What "tools" do you use?

Perhaps competition of pushing the iron racks up steep inclines.....
Lombard street should work well as test area. pretty scary incline...

also one that was always my favorite was the hp 2100 restuffing
contest.... we used to do this at Computer Exchange Inc.. when we had too
much time on our hands.... you take all the cards out, place them in a
wicker basket mix them up and when you hear start... you begin
reassembly... if you want to liven it up you have 4 people play and all
the cards go into one batch.... really messy with 4 people trying to elbow
in to snatch cards.... and yes... the processor has to run when you are
done! no broken parts allowed!
