Face it Tony, someone is always going to be doing it.  Don't tell me 
that you've *never* done it. :^)  Sometimes it's easy to forget in 
the excitement of a new system.

Actually how about a clarification here.  Are you saying *ALWAYS* 
test the PS before turning the system?  Or just when it's been idle 
for a while?  I do know when the time comes for me to power my 
PDP-11/44 back on, I'll be testing the PS first (I've not been able 
to use it for over 6 years).
