"Told client don't use a 14 year old used desktop for their one and only business server running two businesses CRM's and inventory management systems. Told them they should automate backups to a separate system, use a RAID1 at least....something...nope too expensive, we can't afford a new desktop, we cant afford new drives... Server gets installed on used no-name SSD on a 14 year old used desktop...


I got the call today, 1 year later almost on the dot. It's all gone, 20 million dollar business lost the last 6 months of data, database of clients, client forms, banking documents, everything. The only reason they even have anything is I convinced the owner to at least let me come in and do a manual backup 6 months ago.

Unbelievable, I don't know where they come from, I basically pleaded with him to at least buy some brand name drives. They dig their own grave but damn if it isn't hard to watch


Edit: Business is a dealership, the salesmen lost most of their data as well, client lists, who bought what, it's a missing paperwork nightmare."



:bowrofl:
Sounds about right

what a dumb financial decision considering the new generation mules are already out testing
You guys can all come give me shit for this but I don’t want to buy the first year of a new model given that I expect them to have all sorts of teething issues.

@Do it To it got any recommendations for buying a new Honda Odyssey EX-L or Elite for the wife? or a new Sienna. limited supply of both in my area (midwest).

or should @NiggaPHX420 ship it to me?
Tbh I have no idea where to tell you to look.

A lot of dealers simply aren't doing out of state deals.

If they are, they're commanding premiums/ADM's/requiring financing/etc.

It's all a fucking mess right now brother. And the manufacturers are loving it. Dealers are loving it. Everyone is going to do everything they can to keep things the way they are for as long as possible.

If you find one you like at a price that's reasonable given the current market - DO NOT HESITATE TO BUY IT. If you don't it very well could be gone tomrorow.
