18:43 <PovAddict> dad is w&%$ing from home

18:43 <PovAddict> bit of a crisis

18:43 <CoderForLife> I'm w@#%ing at home right now

18:43 <CoderForLife> before the w@#% week begins

18:44 <PovAddict> apparently they rebooted a server... and it didn't come back

18:44 <CoderForLife> it happens

18:45 <PovAddict> and *now* the ugly facts start to resurface: that setting up proper replication was procrastinated over and was never done

18:45 <CoderForLife> heh  yup

18:45 <CoderForLife> did they ever do a backup and test it?

18:46 <PovAddict> even if they have a backup, they'd rather not reinstall the system from scratch

18:46 <CoderForLife> no one does

18:46 <CoderForLife> if you fail to plan, you plan to fail

18:46 <PovAddict> but it's also possible that there's no backups, or non-working backups, or ancient backups

18:47 <CoderForLife> that's the most typical story

18:47 <PovAddict> the server boots in safe mode

18:47 <PovAddict> but they can't do much from there, since in safe mode the USB keyboard doesn't work

18:47 <CoderForLife> I've had servers that I was forbidden to touch become my responsibility when they fail

18:48 <CoderForLife> of course they failed when the user was doing a backup and a system upgrade at the same time

18:48 <PovAddict> err

18:48 <CoderForLife> their *only* backup

18:48 <PovAddict> that sounds like a very very bad idea

18:48 <CoderForLife> I tried to explain that to them

18:48 <PovAddict> unless they have an advanced OS with filesystem snapshots

18:48 <CoderForLife> not

18:49 <CoderForLife> of course it became my problem to dig them out of the hole

18:49 <CoderForLife> the server was full of dust - solid dustball inside

18:49 <PovAddict> D:

18:50 <CoderForLife> I've never seen anything like it before or since

18:50 <PovAddict> I have

18:50 <PovAddict> in The Daily WTF or something

18:51 <CoderForLife> yeah - I have had some of those in my career

18:52 <PovAddict> http://thedailywtf.com/Articles/The-HumanReadable-Encryption-Key.aspx D:

18:52 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/3vq4woj> (at thedailywtf.com)

18:53 <CoderForLife> yeah - that clears it up right away

18:53 <PovAddict> *this*, ladies and gentleman, is what happens when you use libraries that "automatically" serialize arbitrary objects to XML

18:54 <CoderForLife> heh
