I saw this on the OTN forums, posted by user alanm and thought I would share it here. For those of you who are familiar with the song, "Yesterday", sung by the Beatles, imagine that tune, substituting the following words:

a Beatles song about backups

Yesterday
--------------

Yesterday,
All those backups seemed a waste of pay.
Now my database has gone away.
Oh I believe in yesterday.
Suddenly,
There's not half the files there used to be,
And there's a milestone hanging over me
The system crashed so suddenly.
I pushed something wrong
What it was I could not say.
Now all my data's gone
and I long for yesterday-ay-ay-ay.

Yesterday,
The need for back-ups seemed so far away.
I knew my data was all here to stay,
Now I believe in yesterday.

I remember seeing this either here or some other forum or maybe even in an email. It's quite funny.

It was probably copied from faqfun.htm. It was later moved to Fun stuff.

Update: Here is a reference to how the page looked in January 1998 - faqfun.htm.
