You know it's going to be one of those days...

... when your build server suddenly drops off the network. After a little investigation, you discover that it was unplugged by someone who had started working at the desk where the server was, who very kindly unplugged it and moved it halfway across the building to where they used to sit, and then left it unplugged and switched off on the floor.

There are two solutions to this:

  1. stick a big fat red label on the build server warning of the dire consequences associated with even touching the server;
  2. get a proper server installed in the datacenter, rather than an ageing PC that masquerades as a server, at what at the time was an empty desk.

Care to guess which solution we will be going for?

You could sit it on the desk next to you so you can watch it and smack people hands when they go anywhere near it.

Better still sit the server between Brent and Steve. I pity the fool who dares touch that box.
