Main Session


Mr Chris Malton (Individual)


This short presentation covers several incidents I ended up managing while in my role at Vostron in Southampton. It covers: * The ticket which was resolved with an internal recommendation to hire a cat. * The curious incident of the missing backup phone line. * When "OK" means silently corrupting data. * How a "Road Traffic Accident" leads to 12 weeks of downtime. 4 short "war-stories" type tales that network & system admins across the country can probably relate to in one way or another.
