How a Bank's' Computers Went Up In a Puff of Smoke

Last Update: October 07, 2015

I was my guvner's fault and I completely blame him for being really, really stupid.

He's gone now, God rest his sweet soul, so I can kinda say what I like.

Between me and him

We took out an entire local bank's network. It was one heck of an achievement.

It's all to do with wiring, you see, and how to blow up a rather large computer. It was a bank job I saw coming just before it happened when why boss wouldn't listen to reason. If anyone is unfamiliar with big power supples just ignore the jargon and wait for the boom,

I told him "that's a very big power rectifying capacitor so don't plug it in that way round.

"Shaddup", he said. "I' know what I'm doing."

"But you've never done it before and I've just come back from the manufacturer's. That power unit is wired the wrong way round. If you put that capacitor in there while it is still connected you will complete the curcuit and then expect trouble."

"Shaddup", he said. "I' know what I'm doing."

That was when the blast happened.

I call it a blast because that's precisely what happened at that moment. t's rather impressive when a distributing power capacitor distributes itself around a room.IThe was a ruddy great flash and a bang and a heck of a load of smoke as the entire power unit ignited and spreads it's contents blazing everywhere,...

My boss went backwards at least twenty feet and landed in a heap on the anti-static carpet. He got carpet burns that day, if you know what I mean. but he was lucky to live to tell the tale. Every light in the building went out until the emergency generators had done their jobs as in case such as having to deal with emergencies like us two, my boss.and me.

By that time all the computer's had gone down - they we'ren't expecting us and had beggared off in shock.

When my boss came to I asked him, politely..

Why spend all that money on training some-one and then not listen to the expertise you paid for?

Shaddup"

Wasn't that why you sent them to posh hotel for three weeks where they could learn all day then drink the bar dry?

Shaddup"

Wasn't it where you spent an absolute fortune on specialist technical product training?

Shaddup"

Oh, yes it jolly well was.

Shaddup"

So what made you think you knew better?

Shaddup"

You;ve just blown a bank up and now the rozzers are coming. Well, you can explain this one to them.

Shaddup"

The moment we get outta jail you're paying down the pub.


So, please don't anyone out there buy Premium and not use the training you get. Or else you aren't listening to your own expert knowledge, that you are buying with it.

If you're a Free Starter Member, Hi and welcome.

Stay a free member and let the training you will still get here be your guide until you think you may have to go premium 'coz you're earning money. I recommend staying free as long as possible -that's why my stats are at a lovely shiney zero and that's cool with me.

We often say the only way is up but we forget the wonderful advice given by Sir Isaac Newton - "what goes up always comes back down, kerthump"

it's one of his laws of something or other, that's difficult to fathom.. Happy days -eh?

Hello - thanks for the comment. My old boss was slightly crazy anyway so he didn't mind being blown up every so often. It became a bit of a habit.

It's true that some don't use the knowledge the gain - some seem a little shy about their own abilities. I think if you have a trumpet give it a good old blow and wake up the neighbours! Have fun and best wishes,

Andre

Hello - Shaddup was my bosses favoutire expression - he was from SA and that explains a fair bit, eh? It's the norm in SA to be slightly off beat - they have to be to keep up with the rest of us all, eh?

Many thanks for your cmment - lovely when people get in touch and share their thoughts and stuff.

Very best wishes and enjoy life at WA - gotta mention WA for the keywords. They can tell, you know, and they'll do a video all about it.

Hiya Katie - that was one of the average days - you should see what we got up to behind the clients' backs. Very true about the dog and the barking - I have a solution. I've got a dog woofy sound effect instead - you can hear it but you have to take it walkies.

Oh - AND THE BEST NEWS EVER - I've really gotta a shootout in my training video going online soon. - Getting some help from Leland Best - he's a bit mad too, you know - but check his YouTube vids - very cool.

My new FabBook thing's up nw
