i wish i had the job of being a technical consultant to the writers for tv shows…

i went through a whole segment of the last show ‘shut down’ where the asian hacker that did not understand how a datacenter worked was set to download and recover email that was delivered to someone by grabbing shadow files on the router…. the router !!!

my head almost blew up.

i mean.. if you are going to throw out a bunch of technical jargon, at least get the functionality of the network devices, email servers, software and hardware correct.
