Although DevOps goes some way to bridging the mindset differences between Programmers and Infrastructure Engineers, we still have quite a way to go apparently. As a programmer, I often get called a cowboy by my Infrastructure colleagues, but this one was pure gold.

Importance: High


Some servers have got too hot and have shut down. This unfortunately means the Customer Server Web server i.e. Work Order system is down.


We are leaving them off for ~15 minutes while we run fans over them & will then try powering them back up.





At least we got to go home early!
