Again, the whole WoV team sends their apologies. How many push-ups do I owe?


I think I'll set the precedent of demanding my membership fee be refunded.


Oh, wait. This is a free site.

In that case, I'll just say shit happens. Don't beat yourself up over it. Zero push-ups.

However, I seem to recall reading a comment from SooPoo I believe, that you still owe him some push-ups....

Mr. W., I almost apologized on your behalf, having recently peeked behind the curtain ... sad ... sad ... sad ...

--Dorothy



Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain. He isn't me.

More importantly, a big welcome back! I can't wait to hear how you've been and what you have to say.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I once had a Unix admin fat-finger the -I and -O flags on a CPIO backup command, for a major school district, since the "I" and "O" keys are right next to each other. He did a -I, when he should have done a -O.

Mike does not owe ME push ups at present. The 25 push ups he owes me were transferred to his son. We are in the middle of another push up bet that will resolve Friday.

Ouch.

For those that don't know unix, CPIO is short for CoPy In Out. -I is for input. -O is output.

I guess this guy was trying to restore files from a backup, and instead, erased the backup. Ouch big time!


The biggest mistake I ever did was to change the permission bits globally. While I was logged in as root. Fortunately this was at 4:45 on a Friday. In an instant, my weekend plans changed.

It was worse... he was doing the MONTHLY backup and RESTORED the backup from 2 months ago over the current image :p

Huh? Incredible: is there a God after all?

I posted during the 'dark age' and later realised I had made a mistake in my calculations. I come back today to correct it and, lo and behold! my mistake had been wiped out.

Thanks JB, I owe you one.

NP JB/Wiz. Stuff happens. You win a few, and lose once or twice
