I feel bad for all the people that work there. "yeah we are sorry your house is probably getting washed away, and you have no way to even communicate with your wife and kids to see if they are safe, but someone has to answer these phones and be available in case a server needs manually reset or something."

How does a server admin get killed at work?

By trying to be an electrician and installing a breaker live in a pdu without the the correct safety precautions and wrong PPE?


Something like this. Or like the first place I worked, where they were rearranging cables under the raised floor, and found one that wasn't connected at one end. They started dragging it out, the loose end hit one of the flooring supports, and there was a big flash-bang. Turned out the other end was connected to a live 440 3-phase feed.

True, but the rest of the world is still turning, in spite of the proportioned news coverage.
