The Situation (cut a lot to keep it short...):
Made a Website for a Job-Agency (~7 non tek Employees) in Germany. Website is up and live a year already and runs really well. Over 1000 Applications came in (the DB), which is a lot.
Everybody is happy, I got constant approval every post launch meeting ever since...
Now: Realized, and I checked!....none of the applications ever reached the company!
And nobody ever complained.
I have full access to all mail accounts of that company, so I really know that they were never processed...
So what to do now?
Problem was a typo. So it's an easy fix.
-> Fix it, say nothing?
They will for sure wonder about the many new applications..
-> Fix it and tell?
It was my fault, so they will be for sure pissed
-> Sell this somehow?
-> don't fix, see how crazy it can get?
Will they ever realize?

Client: Saw you did some cool logos...can you design us a logo as well?
Me: sure, do you have any ideas already?
Me: Whats the name of the company/project?
Client: We don't know yet.

Lost two machines with 10years+ of my work and files to the police after a raid some years ago...

Last time client got hacked...we just could not get rid of the malware...it replicated itself short after deletion.
