    The good news is that the solid state drive survived just fine and the laptop still boots!

    it's still a write off though.

    shame he had amazing battery life...

    That's a great start to the day. Now you just need to accidentally wipe all the servers, and you'll have a perfect day...

    Time to find your inner spin doctor skills

    Just a really good demonstration of how your back-up procedures work in even the most trying circumstances. You did back it up didn't you?

    You've also chanced on the perfect timing to implement the Alistair Campbell speciality of finding a good day to bury bad news Today, of all days, no-one will care about something so trivial...

    First thing that's made me laugh today though....

    When staff used to have laptops here, 2 people did it in the same week. I have run over my own lunch doing the same thing. Easy done!

    Not quite the same, but I reversed my car into my wife's (me backing out of the garage, her car on the drive) on a day I had to be early for work and was in a hurry.

    Very easily done.

    ....and then you were even later because she half-killed you?

    @chazzy2501:

    You've just won "Dipstick of the Week" well done Chaz!

    Good job it wasn't a Macbook don't think that would have survived and it would have been a lot more expensive to replace

    Anyway I think you got cast iron gonads for actually admitting it with pictures.

    Hope your day gets better

    Going to write an email to the head in a moment... I could spin it as a testament to the ruggedness of the SSD and that it was a deliberate test?

    This is actually a continuation of yesterdays bad luck. Last lunch time I somehow spilled rice pudding in my lap in the food hall. I had to get rid of it and the longer I waited the worse the stain on my crotch would be. Unfortunately there is only a certain amount of times you can interact with your crotch in a room full of children before people start to question your motives. Somehow I'd also got rice pudding on my hand so when I was removing my crotch pudding I put new pud on my thigh and foot. At this moment I thought "I should keep spare clothes in the boot of my car"
