"A coworker of mine and I were installing several machines (including three VA Linux 501 servers -- really nice machines) into rack at Frontier-GlobalCenter's colo space in Sunnyvale. We noticed that we were missing a set of 8 screws for rack-mounting one of the three 501's. So, without thinking too much (or perhaps we knew what was to come), we decided to drive 10 blocks to VA Linux HQ to see what they could do for us."

"We wait a few minutes. And then Rick Moen, of BALUG (Bay Area Linux Users Group) fame, pops his head out and we tell him we need screws. 8 screws."

"... a few minutes later, back he comes with a baggy of screws *exactly* like the one we were missing."

"... thank you VA Linux for being a small-town neighborhood service-oriented company with a stock price above $300 per share. I wish their were more like you!"
