Friendly Advice Machine for IT Pros

Add Your Comments

A link for a Friday afternoon: Monty Python alum John Cleese reprises his role as Dr. Harold Twain Weck, director of the Institute for Backup Trauma, in staffing the Friendly Advice Machine for IT Professionals. Dr. Weck answers a set of point-and-click questions such as “How can I get our executives in trouble” and “How do I keep Mr. Wiggles from destroying electronic evidence” as well as “What is Rule 26.”

Oh, and also “do you really have an Iron Mountain?” Dr. Weck is a character Cleese created for a wildly successful series of webinars for LiveVault, which has since been bought by Iron Mountain Digital. Can you make IT pros smile while pitching them backup services?
