this phenomenon is still spilling over at work..
Interestingly enough, just today, a batch file for one of our test floors got deleted, the entire batch file of over 300 products! I loaded the file, had to reboot the test head, tried to re-load the file and came up with "file not found"
I was like WT*!!! ? Not just 1 min before it was working fine; so i tried a couple more, nada!
I talk to our test engineering manager, who found the problem. The entire batch file was missing; it had 0kb in the folder! He looked at me and said.."WHOA!" that's odd! He restored the file with a back up.
He and our Equipment Engineering manager thought it was REALLY weird since, there are only a very few ppl with access to that area of the server, him and 2 others I believe.
When: Friday, April 4h, 2008
Where: Place of employment
Standing with an engineer at the machine, looking at the boat of wafers (6 wafers) He and I confirmed there were 6. One of the group of 3 wafers belonged in another empty boat since they belonged to another lot. We needed to transfer all the 6 wafers to ovens for the experiment. I took the full boat and he took the paperwork and his book. We LEFT the empty boat ON the machine.
We went to the oven room, 30ft away in the same part of the clean room. Transfered 2 of the 6 wafers to the oven, when another employee walked in for a brief moment to push a cart in the room. I put the lid back on the boat. Placed the wafers in the oven. The other employee walked out of the clean room about 2 mins before we did and went on break.
As we were walking back to them machine to pick up the empty boat.....it was gone!! Nada! We thought that the other employee might have pick it up and moved it. We search the clean room for 3 mins, NADA.
I asked her if she had pick up a boat off of machine 918. "No... if I did, I would have told you guys..."
Where did it go!!!!!?????????????

Not trying to be Forum Police, simply thinking aloud - shouldn't this be in General/Skunk Works? My impression is that Grey Area is for threads by psychopaths and attention-seekers, whereas this is just a guy curious about things going missing.

(I knew both were for 'speculative' or anecdotal threads and/or that didn't fit into a themed folder; I always considered Grey Area to be the Hoax-folder-fodder one of the two...)
