Nice one, TJ! I was cringing through most of it, glad it was just an April Fool's Day article! :)

Yeah, but here in the UK, the April 1st newsletter doesn't arrive until the morning of the 2nd.

And it was still a lame story - didn't make me laugh, or cringe.

Which, of course, begs the question of what does make you laugh or cringe?

So here I was reading this story, thinking to myself, "Yeah, it sounds bad, but TJay's not normally a whiner so he must be at the end of his rope". Quite a believable story, though - although unlikely, it's not difficult to imagine a perfect storm situation where one inherits a system in chaos without valid backups or contingency plans.

Thanks for the tension breaker. It reminded me that things aren't so bad here.
