That's what happened to a computer technician reformatting a disk drive at the Alaska Department of Revenue. While doing routine maintenance work, the technician accidentally deleted applicant information for an oil-funded account — one of Alaska residents' biggest perks — and mistakenly reformatted the backup drive, as well.
talk about bad hair day for the technician formatting a hard disk which contains account worth $38 billion. And their backup tapes were unreadable. Oh well, sometimes life sucks!!!
