Sorry, non-technical post "war stories of the admin" or "datacenter outages caused by stupidity" today.

I play H1Z1 with my wife. It's a fun little post-outbreak walking-dead-ish game (currently in alpha) of survival in a world just after a massive virus outbreak...yadda yadda yadda. Bottom line: don't die to zombies, starvation, or wildlife (particularly bears).

Bears. Good God, man. Unlike real life, bears are relatively easy to...
