Stalled on the launchpad

You won’t believe this one. It’s 6am, still dark outside and we’re preparing to bring everything down and patch it like we mean it. Right when the databases come down, we lose connectivity to everything. We can’t move forward, we can’t roll back.

The hilarity and choas that ensued was priceless.

I’m sure some chucklehead plugged in a vacuum and turned off a server in the process. Nothing like a well oiled machine!

Two hours late but we’re back up and running, of course it’s all dog slow…

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
