Lucky you

I do have entirely unnecessarily priviledged access to one of our main production mainframe partitions. Some month ago I received a notification stating that my access was being revoked. I few days ago I was still able to log in... although the idea of a prank crossed my mind, I was stopped by the fact that even a minor slip-up in the prank could litterally cause millions in damages - depending on the MF support team's reactivity - and the consequences would probably include several years of hard time behind the bars.

Anon for I'd like to enjoy both employment and full access to interesting systems for a wee bit longer.
