in thread Greatest programming mistakes and what to learn from

In the 80's I worked on a VAX with a funds transfer application. I had bad information on which machine was live and I deleted the active database. This was at 4pm and the funds transfer network closed at 4:30...come to find out this bank had VERY low traffic and they had not yet entered the transactions for the day...I reallocated the files and they entered their stuff and no one was the wiser (except me).
