I can't give any details because I don't know where my non-disclosure agreements ends... but enough to say that I did a great job and all the records of it were erased/manipulated/changed. It took me hours just to find one log of the log of the log that shows the original records with my user name. I've submitted a complain with my findings and raised the red flag. But I'm still to find out if anything is gonna be done about it. And regardless, now I have the constant feeling that I'm being targeted by some unknown backstabber. :mad:
Now I'm gonna have to start making copies of the stuff I do, taking screen shots of everything I send, etc etc. That's gonna be a lot of extra work and it sucks lots... I'm pretty busy as it is. :bang:
back everything important up to a usb thumb drive you keep in your pocket.
Yup... 320GB 3.5 usb drive... purchased last night... kept with mah at all times from now on. Still sucks tho.

It's happening everywhere. Everyone is afraid of being laid off, so they're stabbing their co-workers in the backs and sabotaging their work.
I friend just email me a video to cheer me up... lets see if anybody identifies the original song...
"...You wanna be I.T. superstar
big house, five cars
you in charge
coming up on the world
don't trust nobody
gotta look over your shoulder, constantly..."
I've kept backup for years - but not because somebody having it out for me - it started when I worked for two people at a major company - where if the person did not meet the job requirements and wasn't performing well and was one of the good ole boys - they were transferred into another department so it was their responsibility now (1st one diagnosed with alzheimers and made to retire after he botched another $50,000 job - that he tried to blame me for :mad:) and the 2nd who I'm pretty sure had the same thing --- and I was the freaking skapegoat on several instances. First couple times that happened - I was "caught with my pants down" and could only feebly say stupid things like I did that report, my numbers were this, I proved this item wouldn't work, etc etc.
Finally got smart and kept my own stuff and used it wisely to give myself credibility.

Thankfully it was a clod who did it who couldn't cover tracks, because I pulled from wtmp the IP logs of who did what to prove that it was edited after I left.
I also checked in the .cf files into RCS so fixing things was just pulling out the last version with co. On UNIX systems, I use RCS and make a RCS directory in /etc (permissions 700 of course) that I use to check out config files, edit, then check them in. If they get changed or deleted, I can easily pull out a previous version in seconds.
