    Office backstabing...

    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.

    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.

    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'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 ) 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.

    I had that happen too a number of years back when I worked for a consulting firm for businesses. I configured a site for E-mail and such, tested it and it worked.

    A few days later, the client refused to pay saying E-mail was bouncing. I came onsite, found that someone edited the sendmail.cf files to cause mail loops.

    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.
