THWACK Monthly Mission - March 2019

You find yourself with a multitude of clues.  Use your instincts and your plethora of tools to understand the means behind this atrocious crime.  This is the worst crime of all.  The epitome of treachery.  What crime you may ask?  Theft of productivity.

Comb through the clues and look deep into the bowels of your infrastructure.  Avoid the red herrings and get down to the actual root cause.  Detectives are only as good as their mind and tools, so use them both to find the culprit in “The Case of the Curious Systems Meltdown.”



MARCH MONTHLY MISSION

Use the mission’s resources to complete the tasks and answer the questions for a chance to win!

Correctly answer each question during the week and you'll be entered for a chance to win the weekly prize.

Correctly answer all 20 questions over the course of the month and you'll be entered for a chance to win the grand prize.

  • I'm humbled to see the community stepping in to help and adding their opinions to the dialogue that these missions innately create. It's one of the (ok, a lot) of the reasons me and the team enjoy our line of work so much.

    I would encourage to continue sharing opinions in a constructive manner. We have thick skin, it's part of the job. In fact, we appreciate it when you call our baby ugly from time to time. There's a lot that goes on behind the scenes to make this machine run, and we couldn't do it without you.

    Now that I'm out of meetings, I was able to reset incorrect responses for yesterday's question due to the one word that was edited. Thanks for your patience.
