Downloads Kill Hospital Server

The Queen Mother Hospital’s (Margate, UK) server was down for two days because it was stuffed with illegal music, movie and software downloads. While the server was down X-rays had to be processed using film.

The sysadmin tried to regenerate some of the most vital data from the server, but some essential data had to be restored from hand-written notes.

The crash slowed down the hospital and an angry patient responded:

It’s a disgrace. How can they sit around downloading music when they should be looking after patients? By blocking up the system they’ve put people at risk.

According to a spokeswomen of the hospital the staff have been told that from now on any music, movies or other inappropriate files will be removed. So no illegal downloads anymore to fill their Ipods.
