I do hope our British readers have all committed democracy today. Of course, you could feel free to let the BNP speak for you. (I voted Greens for EU on the software patent issue and straight Greens for everything else because Labour, Tory and Lib Dems appear populated with weasels, except Ken for Mayor because he's good with public transport. I might have voted RESPECT but I failed to research them beforehand.)
Happy birthday to severina_242! How's the Polish passport application going, my sweet?

A one-second power spike took out every PC and the crappier Suns. The servers, including everyone's work storage and NT home — the backed-up storage where all business data is to be saved — were of course on UPS and unaffected. This showed up in the helpdesk mail soon after.

Customer : User, L
Requester : User, L
Type : Incident
Priority : Medium
Category : Desktop Computing/Hardware
Product : PC Desktop
Summary : Power outage
Detail : A few minutes ago at 14:41 there was a power outage on the 7th floor. All pc's were rebooted and some people lost work that had not been saved. Mr User wondered why there was no IT procedure to deal with this sort of incident. If there is such a procedure it did not work. This is seen as unacceptable. Mr User will like to receive an explanation on this matter.
I so wanted to write the reply email.
