    IT Screw-Ups

    IT Screw-Ups

    To err is human, but it takes a computer to really screw up. From rebooting the work server by accident, conducting tests on a live system, dropping a RAID on its head, funny reply-all's to—oops—bringing down a national bank's system across the entire country, IT staff share their worst. Definitely a "funny after it happened" episode to start the new year with a chuckle.
