Users, eh?

All student rooms on campus have the facility to be connected to the internet.  There's a fee, but the students get 'better-than-broadband' (T3?) connectivity.
Yesterday evening, the residence network failed in four buildings of one college.
The technicians have just announced, with considerable satisfaction, that it wasn't their fault: someone in the college had unplugged networking hardware in order to use an iron.

Comments

Though how they can justify leaving an adapter with networking hardware plugged into it just lying on the floor of a utility room with no lable, beats me.

I'd say this falls under the category of "Is this yours? Then ****ing leave it alone."
It doesn't matter whether the adapter went to essential networking hardware or, I dunno, a lava lamp, it shouldn't have been unplugged. Period.
