Any of you ever had a dream about a specific person but not actually seen that person in the dream? First for me, very weird.

Scary shit, that's the magma building up under Yellowstone, it stretches 465 miles down and is rising 2 inches per year.

I decided once I'd torn the ceiling down that there's enough space to vault it, so today I did that. I used slightly thin joists because it only has to support the weight of the ceiling, nothing else. Tomorrow will be about reinforcing it a little by attaching it to the purlin above, and putting some spacers in so it looks a bit like a grid. And then electrics. Day after, hopefully, insulating and boarding it back up. Oh and because I've vaulted it I now have to build a big triangular frame on one side so you can't see into the loft.

Also discovered something the previous owner didn't want me to see (hence the false ceiling). That'll be fixed when I eventually get it re-roofed.

Just for illustration, the old joists on the left are the original ceiling height. The new ones on the right are how much extra space I've grabbed. I haven't measured it but I think about 15-20 inches.

I did that with a live SQL database years ago and wiped out our entire price book for about an hour...though in that case we did have a backup.

We lost TUIs entire marketing warehouse once. Only got about 2 servers worth of the data back.

During a disaster recovery exercise at a major bank I worked at, the regulatory reporting database cluster got corrupted.... infrastructure teams were told over and over not to do anything until database was offline. So they switch the disk storage to the backup instance while database was online, and the production and backup instances start writing to each other... 100 terrabyte database is now garbage. Took a month of restoring backups from tapes and then 3 weeks of restoring file backups to get it running again. I think we got fined a million euro a day for that mess.

I think everyone who works in IT has had one of those 'hot flush' moments when you click the Ok button and then realise that was the wrong button to click about .5 seconds later

I still have flashbacks to me accidentally running rm -rf in my home dir ages ago. That slow realisation and then manic ctrl-c'ing to stop it as quickly as possible. :(

I, on the other hand, have never made a mistake. :)

It's a hard life being perfect.

YES. PERFECT. :eek:

Y'all are making me so glad I've just stuck to Pre Sales rather than actually having to get my hands dirty :)

I once typed out a programme on my Commodore PET from Personal Computer World and it didn't work.

Well that was a monumental waste of time, money and lives then.

I can't remember the last time the M1 wasn't being worked on and 50/60 mph
What really pisses me off about this (and I've been moaning for years about it) - is that the Department for Transport is clearly chock-full of retards. They're still pushing this:

The Department for Transport (DfT) said where hard shoulders have been removed, they won't be reinstated, as they "do not always provide a safe place to stop"
Yes. Hard shoulders are dangerous places to be.

But NO hard shoulder is a really dangerous place to be. < and this is the bit that they simply cannot get through their fucking thick skulls.

But it's a simple line they need to remember: The only thing more dangerous than a hard shoulder is no hard shoulder.

Ignoring the safety aspect for a second - for which any retard can see that taking the hard shoulder away is a fucking dumb idea - they don't even seem to work particularly well from a traffic flow perspective, as no fucker round here actually uses the extra lane. Instead of sitting in the middle lane for miles on end they sit in lanes 2 and 3, meaning the traffic just bunches up there instead. This means half the time the traffic in Lane 4 is doing 60 for no apparent reason, blocking progress for us super important BMW drivers who clearly don't see anything less than 90 as acceptable.

Thank God for the Toll Road and M40 and a bit of normality.

Nah, more Toll Roads pls. Better standard of driving, more lightly policed, easily the best motorway in the UK.

Unless you get rid of BMW drivers you'll never improve standards of driving, they are closely followed by drivers of any Ford ST.
