Weird Tech: 'Idiot' Telecity engineer pulls plug on ISPs across UK

"A Telecity engineer shut down a number of ISPs and their customers across the country after accidentally knocking out at least five Datahop ports at a London data centre late yesterday evening.

According to a report by AAISP on the support blog, the chaos did not stop there, with the man then proceeding “to plug them back in randomly.”

Concerned night support staff contacted Telecity, The Register reports, which in turn contacted Datahop. Despite being “banned from touching anything,” the man managed to move yet more cables before a Datahop engineer arrived to unravel the mess."

No harm, no foul… :eek:
