He must have been fired for not taking his job seriously. I mean a server rack cost money plus the problem he caused to make the server go offline.

Considering the prize of hardware these days, and the amount of money you make in the computer business, this probably wasn't that expensive for the poor sap.. Unless the site(s) sued him for the down-time or something.. >:)

The difference between a normal system administrator and a computer engineer perhaps?
A engineer would probably have planned for this in the months before.. You know, like brought a ladder, or a just a chair without wheels.. :D

@wowizowi, qualified? How the hell is this guy qualified? He is kneeing on a swivel stool with wheels to work on a rack. He is not qualified to work at McDonald as far as I see it.

gergf, you're right, he's definitely not qualified to work at McDonalds, and I'm sure that's as far as you can see it. If you knew the systems and networks he’s built over the last 10 years, you could see past his ’15 minutes of fame’ here on this site and after being up for 2 days. Anyway, it is pretty funny!!!

Not necessarily 15,000 bucks, he could have got it from ebay, haha

Well, atleast he didn't drop the whole server farm in a dominos effect. That would have been hilarious, but unfortunate.

A server rack is an insignificant cost in a datacenter this size. That tech is a lazy dumbass for using anything other than a ladder. He should have pulled the server, set it on a mobile bench, done his work, and put it back. I do this type of work for customers every other day. This jerk is probably one of the reasons we don't really have chairs in our datacenter. :S
