Yeah, it takes a long time to build up that sort of wiring mess. I've seen close, and it was the result of a hosting center that hadn't been completely overhauled since 1992 and was cluttered with legacy hardware, incremental upgrades, obsolete servers gutted and stuffed with NICs to serve as unix based routers, zero documentation, and two decades of being staffed by interns and underpaid college students. Cryptic just hasn't existed long enough for things to get to that point.

On a more serious note: Most of their server crashes have to do with a database software fault, not hardware issues.
