Servers vs. techs
Stupid users, clueless execs, bumbling bosses -- you expect trouble from them. But what happens when a colleague within the IT ranks is responsible for that fateful flick of the wrist? In this case, a near disaster.
The tech pro should've known better when tasked with determining which servers were to be decommissioned in a large, bustling data center. Be it bad judgement, brain fart, or simple ignorance, he honed in on a critical management server -- then unplugged it, took it to his desk, and reformatted the hard drive.
This major mistake unleashed a tidal wave of problems related to the firewalls, backups, and that database. Unsurprisingly, the techie was transferred before he could strike again.
