of course in a real recovery situation maybe deciding that every website is potentially dangerous wouldn't be such a bad thing. I can see the conversation now
DBA: Well we had a recovery to do and so I followed the procedure on
CEO: And now we've irretrievably lost the data DBA: It would appear so unfortunately, the walkthrough was missing a vital step
CEO: And remind me again what we pay you for, what was it you pay raise application said again
DBA: er, er, CEO: 'exceptional technical skills and first class judgement' DBA: er, er
CEO And you ran something you found on the internet?
