I think my favourite IT story (not mine) is the server that needed to be rebooted whenever it froze completely. The mcguyver solution? Get an old pc with a CD drive, and every time it loses connection to the server it ejects the CD tray, which has a poking stick attached, which hits the reset button.

The line between genius and insanity was definitely blurry there.
