When I visited ALR, a company in Irvine that evolved into making PC type 
servers and were absorbed into Gateway (name still is used) had a lab 
with a lot of hardware stations, and for the time good networking.  At 
about noon or so one one of my visits for Sun Microsystems, about a 
dozen of the engineers showed up and proceeded to pull out hardware and 
cables, and displays at various stations and hooked them all up pretty 
quickly.  This was in about 92 or 93, I'd guess.

They converted the lab into a big Doom game for about an hour.

I also found out the best time to round up and have casual consultations 
with them about things I wondered about with some systems.
