At Gestalt IT, we’ve already covered that the IT infrastructure used by the Empire in Rogue One would be a personal hellscape. But it seems like it stood out to a lot of people. W. Curtis Preston took a more positive approach in this writeup, using it as a jumping off point for how to improve your archiving policies.

WARNING: Potential spoilers ahead for Rogue One.
I read a piece by Lee Dallas that reassured me I wasn’t alone in the universe. I saw Rogue One over the weekend. There has been a lot of reaction to the film. Some call it a refreshing change of tone for the franchise, other a dreary slog with unmemorable characters and an ultimately irrelevant plot. I definitely fall more on the positive spectrum of reactions. Right after the showing, I had had a shocking realization. I’ve been a Star Wars fan most of my life. I’ve read my fair share of the expanded universe novels, played most of the video game properties, and seen the movies more than I’d be comfortable counting. But seeing Rogue One made me realize that for all the monolithic terror the Empire represents, they have garbage IT.
