Twitterholicism - The Silent Killer


OK, so it's turns out that my own life is the best source of new stories.

This actually happened this morning, though I changed a few names to protect the guilty (why I would want to protect them, I'm not sure). When I ran our crappy accessibility checker, the crappy site I was scanning started to throw a butt load of error messages - to the tune of 24Gb in the Web server log file - almost filling the partition! Sweet! I felt like a hacker, bringin' down the man's Web site. Sadly, I was clueless as to what I'd done until Prophead informed me. /sigh

Something similar happened to me a couple weeks ago, sysadmin DOSing the main campus server.

I'd hate to be one of your colleagues. How old are you - 14 or 15?
