As some of you know, I am the chief engineer/network manager for 7 radio stations. At some point in time Saturday afternoon, red soda was spilled into our new board. Nobody called and told us. So when the morning show guys got in this morning, well no board, it was fried.

If they had called when it happened, I could have had them power down the board, and gone in Saturday and cleaned and dried it. I would not be waiting for an over night delivery.

On the positive side, the contingency plans I have in place worked, and we were able to be on air....

Do you plan on taking any disciplinary action?

Well, in all honesty, if this conglomerate of 7 radio stations is hiring people who drink red soda anywhere near an expensive and vital ''board'' then maybe the ''hiring squad'' needs to up grade it's demands for responsible users. Just an honest observation.

The question should be who over 7 years old still drinks red soda?

Gatorade, and Grey Goose makes a fine combo.

Shouldn't you have been the one to tell employees, no food or drink within 10 feet of the board; being the engineer/network manager and all?

This is a management issue for not being on top of the situation!

Posted it, and enforcing it are two different things.

Accidents do happen, but when someone screws up, they should inform the right people. They should not be having liquids near electronics like that either. Sometimes hiding mistakes makes the outcome of the mistake much worse. Fear can cause a lot more bad than good lots of times.

So who's responsible for enforcing the postings? Management?

I once went to work after 3/4 a bottle of vodka. Worked on despatch at a lumber yard. Broke the gantry, and casually walked away, as if nothing had happened. Oh, it broke because it had also latched around the railing that the timber slid along, which was concreted into the ground. was a good inch high after that.

I have no regrets..
