Yeah, but it was published on April 1st and in the April 1st newsletter.

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. Cool
