Heatwave Zaps UK ISP Bush Internet
By: MarkJ - 12 August, 2003 (8:59 AM)

Customers of the TV based UK ISP Bush Internet were left without Internet access last week after the heat wave caused servers to crash:

But scorching temperatures on Friday caused the servers for the ISP to crash, losing customers' archived emails and address books.

According to Net Access (the company that operates Bush Internet), in order to fix the heat-related server crash it had to temporarily suspend the Bush Internet service.

The suspension meant a third of customers lost their address books and archived emails and they were unable to send and receive new emails or surf the internet.

Unfortunately heat is a very real problem for all computer systems, even some desktop setups. Ideally offices containing computers should be air conditioned to avoid damage. More @ Web-User.
