I had a customer who had a large water pipe break in the ceiling
directly above their AS/400.

The pipe spilled water on top of the AS/400 for two days.  IBM dried it
out with hair dryers, and it worked like a champ.

System is still working over two years later, however, IBM won't put it
under service for us.
