    I do hope so too as having so much responsibility would be dancing around my stress threshold.

    However i think you misunderstood what I was trying to say. I never meant to say that you should remove preventions to test it out.

    I was referring to how when things are working correctly nobody gets thanked, but when things break everyone blames you. Same when the year 2038 happens, few people will thank engineers and think about the many hours that went into fixing the problem, most will just say 'Oh those pesky engineers have overblown that problem, yet barely anything happened'.
