Three days restoring is too long too. Unless your server is remote and upstream is super slow.
This is becoming more commonplace as companies are outsourcing or contracting out their admins and development.
But none of these things should give you permission to be a control freak. You are responsible for keeping the databases up, yes. But you are not responsible for everything that happens to them. Sometimes your dbs just get screwed up and you'll have to fix it. Just like sometimes business wants things done to the site/app that will totally jack up the fung shui i had going on in code. Nobody is purposefully trying to screw anyone over. We all want the business to grow and succeed. People make mistakes and shit happens. There's no need to also be an ass to each other on top of it all.
You'd think that, but when it's your job on the line because fucktards in management have 0 clue and assume that because it has something to do with the database and you are the admin, it's your fault. And having been subject to intentional sabotage, and seeing it done numerous times, it exists and happens.
Then you shouldn't have any problem naming two such incidents. So prove it.
This is retarded to even think but, okay. In the real world, a friend today can become the enemy tomorrow. Not to mention, we actually get most of our best intelligence from our allies, whether they wish to give it to us or not.
Yeah. That's why we have that string of military bases along the US/Canada border.
We have 70+ military bases and installations along the Us/Canada border from Washington in the west to Maine in the east. Here
So cutting US exports is a good thing in your opinion? I would say that it was a problem. And why would the software from other nations be compatible with our software? And if it isn't then there is the problem with "lock in" and not much benefit from "competition".
Why would it need to be compatible?
Apple has been around for years and has a lot of money. And yet there are still times when dealing with a government agency or a private company that a Microsoft product is required. So why do you think that this situation will be improved by introducing MORE platforms that are intentionally incompatible?
First of all, when the government began introducing computers into the common work environments, Apple was not a real competitor. MS work a hell of a deal with the government for licensing that Apple wasn't willing to do. Then along came Dell. Dell was able to put a PC and/or laptop into the hands of government workers for less than 1/3 the cost of an apple computer. Not to mention, at the time, Apple's OS sucked for ease of use. Today, Macbooks are becoming more prolific in government work, each of the 4 agencies I have worked with in the last 2 years were switching all of their laptops to macbooks and running windows virtually. It takes a huge amount of time, in many instances, years to migrate hardware and software. Hell for the FDA to approve the installation of a single piece of software took 6 months to get approved on my laptop and that was just Eclipse.
