A Nightmare on Web Street

Ah, Halloween. A night of frolic, candy and costumes, spooky tales and good-natured fun. But all is not as it seems. Evil lurks in the data centers. The malevolent shadow of inexplicable server crashes and the presence of clueless management fill even the most stalwart of IT professionals with dread. Fortunately, the folks are Hyperic want you to face your fears. The company is sponsoring "A Nightmare on Web Street" -- a short essay contest, in which participants submit their most dreaded IT scenarios they have survived in their careers. The IT pro with the most bone-chilling tale will win a Nintendo Wii.
The deadline is Oct. 30 at 11:59 p.m. PDT -- one minute before Halloween! So send in your tale ... if you dare!
