You Broke the Cloud!

Frown Wink Emoticon ;(

I host a number of websites on a “cloud” service where they automatically bring webservers up and down to adjust to the need.  I was running into an error message the other day so I opened a chat with tech support:

Me: I’m trying to create a mysql stored procedure, but I’m getting error X.
Tech: Oh no!
Me: Did I break the cloud?
Tech: You made it rain ;(

I think the world would be a much more interesting place if every tech support person was trained to say “Oh no!” to whatever problem you present.

Notice that emoticon.  Frowning and winking at the same time is a bit hard to do.
