Default Re: FSCK'ing computers are THE DEVIL!

We tried to find a reason to blame this on someone else, preferable Honda, but couldn't. As with most things wrong @MO, it's our own clod-headedness that is our undoing.





Just kidding, we're not going to harm Sean, nothing is Honda's fault, there's no conspiracy here, and all that.





Sorry about the slowtime, though, hope we didn't ruin your morning. It sure ruined ours!

Not a problem. We all know $h!t happens!



But to show you our hearts are all in the right spot, the next time something like that happens, just call us. You can stay and fix those computers from Hell. We'll take all those cool bikes out, ride them hard, put them away wet and then write the article for ya'!



After all, what are friends for?

Back in elementary school, you'd have said "The Dog ate my homework". Now you say "The intern pulled our cables."



Why do those two statements sound very similar?



Look guys, we know you are priveleged folk who don't have to store the tools in the shop, since you've conned manufacturers into giving you motorcycles to ride, but since running computers is the way you make your living, why don't you go off to a surplus shop (there are lots of 'em in OC and south LA county) and get some racks to mount your computers? And some plumber's tape so they don't all get busted when the next earthquake tries to push the racks over.



Oh well, I just figured you had forgotten to pay the phone bill when you went dead.. You did pay it, didn't you?



I can almost hear it now, "The intern didn't pay the phone bill."

Yeah same here, I thought they messed with my computer last night. But then again I don't think anyone I work with would know how to do such a thing.

count me in for that too. I reckon that's a great idea. And also give us a call when you get the computers back online so that we can upload the stories for ya.



After all people are always going on about wanting a different perspective.

Default Re:But... IT WAS DARK OUT!

They are rackmounts. On rails, even. With locking covers so no one can hit the power buttons. Lead-acid batteries with remote-managed power ports below, cables, network switch and monitor swithport in back. Redundant hot-swap power supplies, hot-swap RAID arrays, load-balanced servers with near-realtime addition and removal from the weighted-least-connection server pool so any three of the four main servers can be taken off line and fixed without you noticings.



None of which helps against a good stiff yank on the uplink cables' end.

Oh B.S.!



The only thing I gave a good stiff yank on, well... let's just say I've never heard it referred to as an "Uplink Cable"



I DID however make sure to lube all the processors with Wesson Oil, so they wouldn't squeak and would be less fattening than processors lubed with Crisco.

I now have an image of Sean at work that is very similar to Homer Simpson. I can hear him saying DOOOOO! when he pulled on the cable. MOron's you must do the rest of the world a favor and make sure that Sean never works for a nuclear plant.



Oh well, my life continued just as it always does even without MO this morning.



Take care,

Dave
