I did something like this once only more dramatic. Not that long into a new employer I blew away the entire directory structure of our file based financial system during mid-day processing. Now that was exciting. Felt like running out the back door never to return. Was in the wrong directory and thought I was blowing away something else.

del *.* /s

A quick Y to the question are you sure? (of course, I hate being questioned )

Thankfully it was Novell and I could recover all the stuff - 1 file at a time. Friggen Gates still doesn't give you recover on their servers...

It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, then to speak and remove all doubt.

That guy must be really fast! Killing all four servers before anyone notices.

For real fun, have your admin pull the plug on your order entry database's disk array. The day before the quarter closes. CFO to CIO, "Maybe you're right about needing a backup array."
