As a recent survivor of raid crashes, I read the TechCrunch article about CouchSurfing’s demise with great sympathy. However, a comment from someone calling themselves “theone3” was just priceless. Quoting here so I don’t loose it:
Yesterday, All those backups seemed a waste of pay. Now my database has gone away. Oh I believe in yesterday.
Suddenly, Thereâ€™s not half the files there used to be, And thereâ€™s a milestone hanging over me The system crashed so suddenly.
I pushed something wrong What it was I could not say. Now all my dataâ€™s gone and I long for yesterday-ay-ay-ay.
Yesterday, Need for backup seemed so far away. Seemed my data were all here to stay, Now I believe in yesterday.
