Today, after spending a good hour troubleshooting with IT, I discovered that Bratson deleted 1.2million records from our database yesterday through sheer stupidity. Turns out he re-started a process which was archiving/deleting records – for no reason that he could explain (and which he had utterly failed to mention when quizzed). I very calmly had to eviscerate him. I don’t hold out much hope that this will be the last time he does something idiotic. Thank the universe for back-ups!
Nonetheless, I had a quite marvellous day: I covered off a piece of work which had been looming, had an excellent kick-off meeting for a long-term project and I feel very positive about where I am headed at SML1.
