My Widdle Bwain


My database hasn't been backed up since Christmas Eve. I'm glad I didn't know that when the hard drive controller took a dive a week later. I'm almost sorry I know that now, since that means I kind of have to fix it before I leave for the day. And if the disk hadn't come back up again, then maybe that would have given me a little more ammunition for my pet whine that perhaps it would be useful if the backup process would actually tell someone when it fails. Ah well, lost opportunities.

(Is it a bad thing that I look at the loss of over a week's worth of work right at year end as a "lost opportunity"?)

Edit: Oooh, decisions, decisions. Do I kick off a backup that I know will slow the system down in the middle of working hours and then leave, or do I just leave, knowing that the database hasn't been backed up in over a month and a half and not worry about it? Life is just full of tough decisions that are made so much easier by a large dose of apathy.
