There's something odd going on here, the IBM security man thought. Here's a customer who just spent $102,000 to have a special computer room built in his offices. But the big IBM mainframe computer he had bought wouldn't even fit through the door. The computer, one of the most powerful IBM makes, now sat in the outer office, still in its packing crates. In fact, federal agents--using cameras hidden in the hall outside the office--had already watched it being delivered.
