The beginning of October means it’s time to start stocking up on candy, carving pumpkins, and picking out the perfect Halloween costume. But it’s also a time to scare yourself silly with cheesy Halloween movies and, of course, stories of times when chaos reigned in your data center.


The end user’s ghost haunts us all with innocent mistakes this Hallow’s Eve. From security oversights, to trying to troubleshoot their own issues, to accidentally breaking equipment through an unfortunate potion of liquids and electricity, IT pros have seen it all. With the spookiest day of the year approaching, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the scary stories you’ve experienced (or may have yet to experience!) – and we want to hear them!


Help us celebrate Halloween this year by submitting your real-life scary stories or nightmarish fears about end users by Wednesday, October 17 and in exchange, we’ll give you 250 THWACK points.
