I learned a lesson today, after I thought I had heard it all. It seems that when there is mould in your server room it is important to specify to everyone involved at every level that the equipment in there – often valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars, not to mention the potential for lost productivity – is extremely sensitive to elements, and that pneumatic pressure hoses are not to be used in this room for anything ever ever ever.
You know, I always thought that there were some things that were so blatantly obvious that you just didn’t have to say anything. I was reminded today that I was wrong about that. So: For those of you who may ever be asked to clean a Server Room: NO PRESSURE HOSES.
