Infinite loop IRL?



  • I thought you guys might like this.



    This happened at my work today. I'm a software engineer for an online software and hosting company.



    There once was a Server Admin Level I, an IT Director, a DBA/systems administrator, and a Server Admin Level II.



    Disk IO on two servers goes beyond reasonable means and the server slows to a crawl.



    Server Admin Level I notices the issue, and alerts the IT Director

    IT Directory notifies the DBA/systems administrator

    DBA/systems administrator gives the command for Server Admin Level II to fix the issue.

    Server Admin Level II passes the buck back to the same Server Admin Level I who reported the problem.

    Server Admin Level I then went to the IT Director...





    For you C# programmers out there...





    class ServerAdminL1 {

    public void ContactSomeoneElse() {

    ITDirector newContact = new ITDirector();

    newContact.ContactSomeoneElse();

    }

    }



    class ITDirector {

    public void ContactSomeoneElse() {

    DBA newContact = new DBA();

    newContact.ContactSomeoneElse();

    }

    }

    class ServerAdminL2 {

    public void ContactSomeoneElse() {

    originalServerAdminL1.ContactSomeoneElse();

    }

    ServerAdminL1 originalServerAdminL1 = new ServerAdminL1();

    originalServerAdminL1.ContactSomeoneElse();



  • @digitalpacman said:

    class ServerAdminL1 {

    public void ContactSomeoneElse() {

    ITDirector newContact = new ITDirector();

    newContact.ContactSomeoneElse();

    }

    }

    The story itself wasn't all that great, but the code made up for it 🙂
