This is a ridiculous thing, but I’m looking for something to post to the blog so this is all you get!
I entered into the Show Us Your Downtime Face contest from SUSE a while back and was “lucky enough” to have a live picture to enter. There are not enough scare quotes to put around the phrase lucky enough in that instance. It wasn’t as stylized, but it was real!
To make a long story shorter (hopefully), that picture that I took was what was going across my face when I started to look at the logs for one of our primary application servers on campus. Needless to say, I was going to be facing a little bit of downtime that day. Luckily, that outage was able to propel me to be the first winner for SUSE’s contest.
I’m still not sure that is a good thing …
