Being able to read is not a requirement for this job

[ #36149 ]
You know how sometimes with different platforms, they use different filesystems? This rule also exists with backup tapes. A backup tape on Solaris is usually formatted differently than one on Windows. Although the backup tapes and tape drives are clearly marked, one of my well-trained co-workers managed to put 3 out of 4 tapes in the wrong drive, resulting in a very strange error. Someone's in for some Pwnage tomorrow.

  • At first, I thought the subject line was going to refer to someone at your work. Then I thought it was a clever poke at the tape drives' "job". Then it turned out to be your coworker after all...

    Intentional or not, I grant you a ++ for a good double-meaning subject line.
