Storage in the Crosshairs

The recent conflict between Russia and Georgia over South Ossetia may have shocked the world, but at least one Georgian IT exec managed to make light of a difficult and dangerous situation.

Late last week, when the crisis started to unfold, Byte and Switch sent a slew of emails to businesses in the Georgian capital Tibilisi to see what impact the fighting had on their disaster recovery plans.

Here is the sole response, from a spokesman for a Georgian Web hosting company, who surely wins our "wry sense of humor" award for 2008.
