Forum, wiki (basically the entire site) was down

Postby Ta'ya » Wed Feb 10, 2016 7:31 pm

The host had two issues this afternoon:

firstly they suffered a DDOS attack, while that was happening engineering work tripped their data centre sending everything on to USP. which instantly shuts down all but vital systems (ie all their Web servers and data servers)

we are backup now and i'll keep an eye on there status page for the night.

Haha I bet. Important people being distracted during their relaxing game of golf, lesser important people screaming at each other and everyone below them. Even lesser important people yelling at the plebs beneath them. And the bottom plebs scrambling about trying to figure out what's wrong, trying to coordinate with other teams and gain access to various things. Then... the top people get back to playing golf, the lesser important people sit around demanding answers, the next layer assigning blame everywhere and so on, right down to the lowest plebians who did the work. Forgotten.

haha, oh how accurate that is

best response i have ever heard was from one of my managers when something similar kicked off were i worked he turned around to his boss and in front of everyone told her to (and i quote) "fuck off and let me and my team resolve the issue or we are going home and you can sort it, if anyone from any other department disturbs us we are going on lunch for a few hours got it"

I think you can only get away with that if you work for people who don't think, "Fire him, and train up a newbie from school. We can pay them peanuts too. Win. Win."

It was at a school deputy head and considering no one could teach as they all use computers not printed out notes. I suspect that is they only reason he got away with it.
