The ClearCase server machine is still dead. Evidently both hard drives went tits up yesterday, and nobody can bring it up. And I’ve got a bunch of files not checked in – from what I remember back when we had a ClearCase administrator, files that aren’t checked in aren’t backed up.
And just to make my day complete, I can’t log into Lotus Notes.
Good thing I’ve got some movies on my iPod.

“How about I set up SCCS for you?”
“SCCS? You gotta be joking!”
“It’s better than what we have now. Sorry, haven’t now.”
This is why I love snapshot views. I can keep working even when CC is down. And it makes builds a lot faster.
Can’t log into Lotus Notes? You say that like it was a BAD thing!
Not backing up views used to be “best practise” as endorsed by Rational back when I was a CC admin. Largely, I suspect, because views were usually spread all over the place, often on random desktops and workstations.
Nobody noticing when the disks fail (which is presumably what happened if *both* the mirrors failed!) is just plain crappy, Clearcase or not.
