/mol'ee-gard/ [University of Illinois] A shield to prevent
tripping of some Big Red Switch by clumsy or ignorant hands.
Originally used of the plexiglass covers improvised for the
BRS on an IBM 4341 after a programmer's toddler daughter
(named Molly) frobbed it twice in one day. Later generalised
to covers over stop/reset switches on disk drives and
networking equipment.
