GitLab.com Database Incident. ⇒

    2 February 2017, terribly early in the morning

One of the most frank discussions about a production i’ve ever seen. They deleted their production database two nights ago, and had a live Google Doc tracking what they were doing to try and get it back. This is what nightmares are made of.

This is a post from my link log: If you click the title of this post you will be taken the web page I am discussing.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

 
Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
