I lost my pitchfork years ago.

Given the lightning strikes the guy there knew enough to not raise it above his head.

I find that companies in such predicaments must work their way though it. Only after they are on the verge of collapsing or a wholesale management change can you do them any good.

But today I'm finding less need for a high powered PC on the front end. It's tough to sell the move to a protected server room and if it's that dire, maybe the cloud is the answer. Who knows how many more toasted careers will be taken by this company.

There's a lot of lessons to be learned at that company. Mostly to steer clear of them till their management learns a few more.

I was imagining...

....if I'd been there, I'd have had someone take a one inch thick piece of tall rebar, attach to the roof above the manager's office, drop a steel cable clamped to it and then clamped to a grounding bar driven 8 foot into the ground, just below the manager's office. He might not take the full hit next time, but he'd certainly hear the boom and the earth shake under him, LOL.
