Doh! Last time I worked in the fishbowl, I waited until the Senior Manager was showing us off to the VIPs, and then I brought up all the day's critical error messages in the IT/O (some of you know it as Opcenter) history at once, so it looked like a screen full of red Criticals popped up all at once. Then I looked at the screen, shrugged my shoulders, and walked off out of sight. He thought I was leaving the room; I was actually standing off where they couldn't see me, but I could still see the screen in case real errors popped up. :-) After that, he started calling us and warning us before the curtain would be opened.
