I’ve been working with VMWare snapshots, SQL Server snapshots and occasionally restore points in Windows. With all of these options in our work life, I think we really need to be able to snapshot in real life. Who wouldn’t enjoy reverting to a snapshot in real life?
You could say things to your boss, after you create a snapshot of course, and based on his reaction revert to snapshot or delete the snapshot. Or, maybe you want to see how that pans out before you delete the old snapshot as it may take you to a place where you need to revert.
Now that I have mentioned it here on this blog, I am sure someone in Hollywood is working on the screenplay reminiscent of Adam Sandler‘s Click. I’m fine with that as long as they do not get Louie Anderson to play me. I would be ok with Leonardo DiCaprio and 10% of the backend, not his backend mind you.
