Institute for Backup Trauma

Filed under: Uncategorized — paulcook @ 3:47 pm

Somwhere in the intersection of Monty Python and server administration, falls Institute for Backup Trauma. It’s essentially an advert for non-tape-based backup solutions, but it’s really funny, and has a collection of crazy people who have suffered “backup trauma”.

Make sure to have a look around the institute after the video finishes.

  1. So… is this a public service, or a cry for help Paul? Do you have “backup trauma” issues? By the way, to everyone else: Clicking on the third button is an absolute necessity.

  2. Well, it is a public cry, but not for help — my backups work very nicely, thank you.

    But yes, it’s a cry for more John Cleese. This world would be a better place, by any measure you choose to use, if there was more John Cleese work to be had.

  3. Did you click on the mouse during the tour? Well to save you time: click on the mouse now

    Also there is a hidden frame in the brain reprogramming movie which is worth a read :)
