Comment: This somehow reminds me (Score 1) 257 257

This somehow reminds me of what happened recently with Dreamhost. It's not the same thing but it's about a confusion of dates and the unability for the system to effectively check for ridiculous errors. It's pretty funny, too (except for the customers)

Basically someone put future dates in the billing system, making it believe we were in a future date, and resulting in ridiculous bills being sent out to every customer for a total of $7,500,000 in the short period of time the program run.

More info on the dreamhost page: http://www.dreamhoststatus.com/
And explanation of what happened by the guy who did it on its blog: http://blog.dreamhost.com/

The major difference between bonds and bond traders is that the bonds will eventually mature.
