What kind of internet website system have the Americans got if one man on his computer can mess up half the system without him being aware of it, if it was to do with national security then I personally think that the whole system wants SERIOUSLY looking into and upgrading to proper safety standards don't you think???
HONESTLY-who's running the show out there ANYONE!!!
Or is it all just one big joke?

It's all a series of Tubes...

I thought it was a set of layers...

OMG, you mean they don't have a backup? For Goodness sakes! All that data lost? Now, where did I leave that pile of 5.25" floppy disks...

I am terribly shocked by this! - while being somewhat amazed that that irresponsible young man was managing to get so many simultaneous jobs running on his eMac.

This reminds me of that sad day many years ago when Buckwheat was shot.

The series of tubes can get clogged unless properly maintained. If people just followed the guidelines of Internet Cleaning Day we wouldn't have problems like this ;-)

Sad reality check: back in 1996, I got a copy of the Internet Cleaning Day email forwarded down from a Lotus exec (who shall remain nameless) with a message along the lines of "Are we prepared for this?"
