Tales from IT – Resurrecting an Essential Database April 20, 2017Posted by Maniac in Site Videos, Tales from IT.
We’ve got a new camera and what better way to break it in than to announce an all-new video series for this website, and we are calling this series Tales from IT!
When Maniac was growing up, he was the only person in his entire family with any technical aptitude, and because of that he has over twenty years of computer repair experience. Tales from IT is a compilation of some of his favorite IT stories over the past few years.
Today, we’ll be telling the story of an essential database left running on a decade-old PC. The owner had no computer knowledge, had no idea what kind of software they were using, and kept no backups. It was working fine until the PC eventually failed due to age, and Maniac got the call to fix it.
Did he fix it? Watch and find out!
More Tales from IT are on the way, please post a comment if you would like for us to produce more from this series!
