Wrong. The server maids are the individuals suspected to be responsible for the crash of the servers in the previous round of instability. They were dusting the cabinets, and knocking loose power cords.

Update: See Servers with an uptime of more than a day are. IIRC, the term came out of a chatterbox conversation.

    jcwren, your answer sounds more likely, but I can't fault AgentM for dreaming. To his credit, I'm sure that there are more servers out there that involve "hot girls" than servers that involve perl.

    Update: Someone pointed out that there are probably a fair number of females named Perl on the aforementioned sites.

    And no, I don't own 27 pairs of sweatpants.

    Or the ^@*%#*&@^ cleaning folks that plug vacuum cleaners into UPSes and have me trying to diagnose the "mysterious reoccuring Thursday night server outages".

    No, I don't sound bitter, do I?

    Moral of the story - don't let anyone near your servers that shouldn't be near your servers. And half of the people who should. My systems run fine with no users. 8)
