Hah, when I was a young sysadmin we had a heterogenous network and one 
box was a Parsys transputer system running Idris.  The only UNIX system 
I've admined where the "shutdown" command would crash part way through 
and you'd need to type sync sync sync and then flip the big red switch.

The chips used to be made in the next city (Newport) along to the one I 
grew up in (Cardiff) in South Wales. :-)

All the best,
