Allow me to take this opportunity to offer my professional services as a certified and licensed scapegoat
For typical server outages, my rates are $85 per hour plus per diem expenses. Network outages affecting 10 or more workstations $300 hour. Entire enterprise failure can be coverd under annual service contract.
Note that these prices are a bargain considering the lost productivity in finger pointing, blame fixing and backstabbing. Not to mention staff jumping ship and low morale.
Just blame me and allow your happy and unstressed professional staff to work the problem, unfettered by management hassles.
Fortune 500 clients include GE, AT&T, Hitachi and Lockheed-Martin.
Or we can continue to blame Mike for free.
