Well that was an invisible problem

So everybody got a scare and one guy quietly learned that doing a big file copy was a no-no at the time. Everyone else began their long journey learning just how to equate reliability and Microsoft.

That was a rather soft one compared to some big scares and even some catastrophes that have already appeared. Oh well, I guess we can't always have tales of how Wall Street servers almost crashed.
