Bad idea. I am an admin. Better to go to your admin and enlist their
aid in this project in the first place.. I know of very few who
woudn't actively help out if asked to be a *part* of the project
rather than having it inflicted on them. You might find that they
can in fact toss more resources and butt-covering your way than you
can possibly imagine. We usually have access to more hardware than
you do, and less accountability.
