A Limerick A Day

In a cock-up that’s tricky to beat,
A coder managed to delete,
All his customers’ sites,
Now it’s time for last rites,
His career has been short if not sweet.

    Worst nightmare. “Oh it’s fine, I’m on the dev server. DROP EVERYTHING. Hmmm… Application won’t start up in Production. Weird”

    Cold sweats start forming.
    Check last backup. Nightly job has been failing since January due to expired password.
    Internet forums.
    Cold sweating.
    Blame a hardware issue.

    Some wretched command line discipline going on in the picture.

    Multiple logins as root, cat’ing out a Windows executable…nearly as bad as the lad who deleted all the things.
