This one wasn't when I was there. I think we also had a oil
spraying event there, but it was relatively contained. We
had one at Washington University, also that might have
contaminated several spindles before they got all the packs
I think this one is fairly quickly detected if the computer
room is occupied, it causes a strong oily smell that is
quickly spread by the A/C system.
