Sometimes Things Don't Go To Plan

And some things do…

On Friday I predicted the database would fall over winthin 24 hours. On Saturday it did.

It got it running again this afternoon. 72 hours of downtime and between 800-1200 records that couldn’t be logged.

Only when it came back up was it spotted that five weeks worth of data was missing. Literally thousands of records.

The IT guys did all they could to say they’d done it properly from the right backup.

I asked them for a copy of the backup and the missing records turned up!

Anyway, by the end of the night I’d managed to merge the missing data into the live database but there are still a few tables that need checking tomorrow.

I’m tired and I’ve got an early start tomorrow. Hopefully the day will go to plan!
