When servers crash and burn
An anonymous contributor to the Infoworld magazine wrote a story about how things can end up terribly wrong when nontechnical managers make technical decisions.
"Finally, a month ago, someone decided that it was time to replace the entire system. The same boss who forced the faulty systems on me in the first place called me into his office and said, “Do a little more research this time. Those machines you installed weren’t very reliable.” I thought about my mortgage and decided not to murder him."
