As a new immigrant from Hungary in 1989 my first job was the night manager at the Inn on the Park Hotel in Toronto, Canada. We had an EECO system for the rooms that crashed on occasion.

Whenever the system was down and we had to revert to "manual mode" everybody else was freaking out, but I was the happiest: it was finally a system that I had grown up with and was most comfortable using at that time. Those backup printouts that we ran on a regular basis were priceless!
