Pause before unleashing the fix (What have I messed up...)

About to run the fix-up script for an error that's about 1.5 weeks old now. The script generates 337 emails to customers, alters the database in 4 or 5 ways and generally has all sorts of ways in which it could screw up in very public and end-customer-annoying ways.

I've just run a test run of it and mistakenly produced 337 emails to myself and one of the ladies in the office. Annoying for her, but at least they didn't go out to the customers from the test run (that's the point of that redirection during testing runs). Just makes me wonder if there's some other little squiggle I may have forgotten.

Anyway, server is doing the database backup now. Won't save me from a screw-up in the sending code, but oh well :) .
