Tao Of Backup Wailing Wall Story

Fast Backups /dev/null

My old company developed s-ware for telco-billing.

One of the customers operatiors commented that the backup tapes were never filling up.

Thinking this strange we investigated ...

The backup was going to "/dev/null"

But only for 6 months !

Yuk Yuk Yuk .. I still get a giggle from that one !
