    Re: IT guy's worst nightmare

    I agree seems worse for all the guys who have to fix and clean the mess. The IT guy gets to order all new ****. Thats more fun than work. The finance department are probably in as bad of shape as anyone. $$$


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    I'm having flashbacks to cleaning up Hilton and Scheman after flooding in the early 90's.

    It was a nightmare for some of the IT guys. They were disassembling and cleaning hard drives and floppy disks by hand and drying them in the open air trying to get them clean enough so they could salvage some of - any of- the data on them. In scheman people were putting back up disks in their bottom drawers of their desks; very smart in a flood plain.

    No kidding. The rain gauge at my research plots was full to the top at 6". Pretty sure we got that before it rained again ~3am.
