Don’t do server updates in your lunch break!

I decided to have a rest today as I have been training for a marathon and a few other things.  I thought this lunch break I would do some important fixes to Hack24 server.

DON’T do this, lunch breaks and servers do not mix.  

I assumed my fix would sort out the issues, it did, but it brought on a whole load of more because I cleared out some corrupted records and forgot the client side would have a cache that now does not match the server side.  Oh boy what a mess.

Backup, nope because I was rushing as it was my lunch break!

Luckily, one of my friends managed to do some database magic.  He will receive a burger on me .

So again, don’t do server upgrades at lunch time, it ruins your day when it goes wrong!
