Submission + - Most expensive javascript ever?

ekran writes: "A while ago Opera Software needed more servers. Not just a few servers either — they were planning Opera Mini's growth, implementing Opera Link, and My Opera was also growing quickly. Most of the major hardware vendor's grabbed their specs and came back with offers and sample servers shipped all the way to Oslo for testing. One of the biggest hardware vendor did however not do their homework. They shipped the server, but when the Opera sysadmins started up the web-admin interface they were met by a javascript that managed to piss off the whole company including the CTO. The script, apparently, locked out the Opera web-browser."
