IT WAS ASKING FOR IT

Police in Salt Lake City said they arrested a mortgage company employee alleged to have drunkenly opened fire on his company's computer server.

Justifiable servercide, if you ask me. I saw a quote from Woz the other day that said "Don't trust a computer you can't throw out the window."

Shoddy reporting. Did the server fire back?

And who could possibly blame him?

Hey Ralph, I'm starting to see a theme here.

He was charged with a felony count of criminal mischief and making a fatal error.

To be fair, the server did have a blade.

Also:
"We told you to troubleshoot the server!"

"I shot the server
but I did not shoot the disk array"

"Was it an Apple XServe? Because those have big Snow Leopards in them..."

I bet it was running Vista.

Skynet won't be happy about this.

Target practice on annoying
'pop-ups/downs/unders/overs/sideways/floaters'....?

ALCOHOL was involved, in Salt Lake City?? This required some motivation on the part of the employee.

Maybe it's those darn new relaxed alcohol rules in UT!

As anyone who has ever filled out a mortgage application, we salute this guy. Not that we would approve of his behavior..

my new Hero!!!
