UNDO Capability field-proven

You know, it had to happen.

We've been talking about how we have our own UNDO capability and that it hasn't needed to be used in the field since a Dutch MM 6.0 server mistakenly got inserted with an East Coast USA time zone.

Well, owing to an unfortunate bug we had to remove an entire insertion of a few thousand users a couple of weeks ago.

Good news: the UNDO worked fine. And we ran UNDO in parallel and the data was out in way less time than it took to put in.

Better news: their insertion re-ran this weekend without a hitch.

Bad news: Like the recent Incredible Hulk movie we need to re-set the "days since last incident" counter.
