And I Thought I Had A Bad Journey

This guy had one that I would rate as much, much worse but in a very different way. No nasty injuries or anything, but some experiences are so much worse than a little blood-letting.

I am completely freaked out by the whole thing, so “enjoy”.


Never Assume

Just a direct link to a Shark Tank story at Computerworld. I can’t improve on their own title so I just copied it.

I was involved with a company that suffered a similar loss when it turned out that operators were re-using the same backup tape every day, but as I recall that was three months of backups lost and was discovered when an errant script performed an rm -r from the ORACLE_HOME directory while the database was open. Happened on a Friday, of course.

Ah, happy days.
