Network Engineer’s Late Note

One of my co-workers sent this email after being caught in traffic.


Morning All

All nodes in the M25 pool are currently OOS.

VIP is at present being serviced by  back-up pool on the A25 ( this unfortunately is only a Pentium 386 with 500Mb of memory).

That said it’s only holding a splash page displaying this message.

That’s why I’m gonna be late in !
