Going live

Tomorrow, I'm visiting a client site to be on stand-by during a go-live of their new infrastructure platform for our product. In the past months, I've been re-installing their stuff on new server VMs and consolidating their platform -- not very sexy, but the savings in hosting costs are tremendous, and the people are quite OK to work with.

Yesterday, the project manager mailed me: "We don't expect any problems when going live. In fact, two months ago someone accidentally activated the new production environment. It happily chugged along in Production for a month before we noticed it."

....right. I'm bringing a book!
