Mr_Shifty: <Client> Hurrrr, I need you to tell me how my backups are set up
Mr_Shifty: <Me> I don't know anything about your backups
reimero: LOL
Mr_Shifty: <Client> Well you guys set this up.
Mr_Shifty: <Me> No, STEVE set that up for you. He's out of the office at the moment. Do you want his voice mail?
Mr_Shifty: <Client> Well I'll be needing some help restoring this file.
Mr_Shifty: <Me> Uh huh.
Mr_Shifty: <Client> Because I don't know how to do this, or what tape or anything.
Mr_Shifty: <Me> I can have Steve call you when he gets back.
Mr_Shifty: <Client> When will that be?
Mr_Shifty: <Me> I don't know. Probably this afternoon. Do you want his voice mail?
Mr_Shifty: <Client> I need help doing this now. Can't you help me?
Mr_Shifty: <Me> No. I don't know anything about your backup system. What software do you use?
Mr_Shifty: <Client> I don't know.
Mr_Shifty: <Me> Backup Exec? Something else?
Mr_Shifty: <Client> I don't know.
Mr_Shifty: <Me> Are your tapes dated? Numbered? Labelled in any way?
Mr_Shifty: <Client> Yes, but I don't know what they mean.
Mr_Shifty: <Me> Do you know which tapes you had in the drive yesterday?
Mr_Shifty: <Client> Yes.
Mr_Shifty: <Me> Then I bet what you need is on one of those tapes.
Mr_Shifty: <Me> I'll have Steve call you when you get back in. He'll know which jobs go on which tapes.
Mr_Shifty: moron
reimero: Heh
reimero: Reminds me of a call I got some time back
reimero: <caller> Is $PERSON there?
reimero: <Me> He doesn't work here any more
reimero: <caller> Is his spouse there to speak with?
reimero: <Me> !? He doesn't work here any more.
reimero: <caller> Well, could you take a message when he returns?
