Hmm, this is turning into "who's computer room hasn't flooded?" Anyhow,
we've had similar problems with the drains from our Leibert A/C units
getting clogged and overflowing, so we now have some water sensors and
an autodialer connected up to send out an alert if there's any water
buildup starting.

It's always good to find out about that before things get too serious.
Fortunately, I haven't seen anything start flooding since I started
working at Purdue's machine room a couple of years ago.
