Abstract: Network catastrophes are as easy as paste-o\'s. Recovery should be as well, and is, if operators have adequate network documentation and monitoring.

Whether it be hardware cooked to a golden brown, undesired or malicious configuration help, naughty s/w upgrades, or automation gone biblical, a hardware and software configuration repository and audit trail are essential to timely recovery.

We will present tools that make this, plus more, possible.
