Ok second rant of the year:
Ok so i go into work today, they are upgrading our servers to windows ME. Upgrading?? Ok somethings wrong here, we HAD 2k server on there. So i ask what hes doing (hes the new blood, new techie), and he tells me he was told too by Dave.
Ok let me tell you about Dave. Dave is a no-girl, pimpled up, know everything, vb loving, rubber doll hugging, ...ok you get the idea, daves a dick.
Dave told him that win2k needed to be removed due to security issues, and to take the server to winME. Dave also told him NOT to back anything up, it was infected with a virus....
I get one hour lunch breaks, and thats where i was when this happend. Dave is not in charge of the IT department, I am (for the most part, our manager is never there). So dave is messing with the new guy, real funny.
So anyway i tell him to stop, the drives been wiped, i tell him to power it off and go on break, and its not his fault.
Lets go visit Dave! Dave thinks this is funny, and he leaves because hes done for the day.
Long story short i was in charge, so I had to stay three extra hours to ensure everything got back to normal.
My question is, do i fire dave, as i can do that. Its not his first offense, and hes a prick...
