Joy In The Early Evening

We blew up a high-end Intel SSD at my day job today.  That isn't supposed to happen.

1 Do you mean "Crap, the drive died" blew up or "Umm, there are pieces of what used to be a HDD in what used to be a server" blew up?

2 I mean, "I'm pretty sure the data centre was here yesterday" blew up.

...

Well, actually, it just spontaneously developed about thirty million bad sectors.  In the middle of restructuring our production database.  Had to drag everything back from the replica.

3 I blame it on the lack of sun spots... we had something along those lines happen with one of our production servers recently.  Scared the crap out of my boss.  heh.  (thank heaven I wasn't in Chicago or it might've been me there for the spectacular failure *grin*)

4 Ah, I see you were visited by Charming Monkey Girl too. Personally, I found her way too talky and downright pushy.

5 Yeah, banning her now.  Just had an exploding server at work and a DMCA complain against one of the forums I host, what feels like a mild case of food poisoning, and about a six-month sleep deficit slowing me down...

6 Four sightings at my place (unusual!) at 0617, 0625, 0633, 0641 GMT.  Will just delete.

Can't be said enough:  REALLY appreciate what you do!
