Not our fault

“Our industry will come back, but it will take some years to return to what it was just two months ago.” - particularly when you keep reducing staff due in part to your own self-inflicted quality control failures, and the FAA's inability to protect/ cover for your egregious failures resulting in the death of 100's.

DataCenter UPS

...watched while a Data Center UPS (size of a large freezer) w/ batteries simply run out of power (due to Maintenance Dept. error), and the entire Data Center was plunged into (crickets chirping) silence ... the next sound heard (from me) was a blood curdling scream for the site Senior Network Engineer.

I TOTALLY agree with you though, because its like being raped in your sleep and then finding out about it later-- you were still violated (but you apparently agreed to being raped, in your sleep, when you signed the disclaimer).
