    OK Corral

    New year, new thread.

    Plus, we have our first WTF contender for 2013: http://www.dbforums.com/microsoft-sq...ml#post6578939

    Got my vote. But another contender is our network guy. Woke up Sunday morning and had 278 alerts from db backup failures. Already had a support ticket to increase space on SAN when he mentioned "How much is enough?". My response was "When we have full backups and the company isn't at risk." Duh...

    Your network guy does your SAN allocation too?

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.

    Don't wet yourself just yet. I've been here just as long before the meltdown and spend my 500 post on your celebration. Congrats! In the last ten years here I've lived in four countries, worked for a select fortune 50 companies, been broke and destitute on the streets of Loundon, traveled to countless counties, dated women twenty years my junior, married a very beautiful russian woman, spent $250k on whatnots (can't remember), and now somewhat settled to a managed role with one DBA report.

    Fuk dat! Geten dis dagen fra. Um retorie esplanonis.

    Cheers,

    Jon

    Sounds like the plot of the next Brad Pitt movie.
    ...except that DBA part.

    If that will cause you to stop posting, I can fix that problem!

    I like having you around... I like to abuse the elderly and if you leave I'm pretty sure that I'll be the oldest one left around here!

    Time to retire R937, and create a brand new web identity.
    Announcing the brand new "R938"!
