As Rick Lawhorn can testify, it's okay to knock the 3675 flat on its back while
someone is using it, it will keep on running!  Actually I think that was a 3670
or a 3600, and in any case I wouldn't recommend trying it at home: only highly
trained professionals who know what they are doing can accidentally tip the
machine over without breaking it!

Another tip about moving a machine: wrap packing tape around the card cages to
hold all the boards in place, and when you reach the destination, make sure all
the boards are seated properly and haven't jiggled loose.  Only a trained professional 
knows how to do this without breaking pins on the connectors, so be careful.
