overheard

... about three minutes ago here at the office, a wonderful example of Slovak-English code mixing so typical of corporatespeak:

Ísť go live s environmentom, kde nevieme restorovať produkciu, je suicide.

The items in bold are English, at least by origin. "Produkciu" is included as well - "produkcia" might be an honest-to-Shiva Slovak word, but in this context, it means "functionality" or "proper working order" and not, as it usually does, "output".

Impressively, Google Translate still identifies the sentence as Slovak. The translation is a little messed up, though: "Go go live with the environmental, where we can not restore production, is suicide."
