Do not watch Olympic Games at work - it will cause a computer meltdown, warns LA technology officer
Wednesday 01 August 2012
The senior technology officer for Los Angeles is pleading with city workers to stop watching the Olympics online at work, saying it could cause a municipal computer meltdown.
City tech guru Randi Levin sent an email asking workers to stop watching the London Games because the city was experiencing a high volume of traffic, according to the Los Angeles Times.
City officials said that employees watching women's gymnastics and football competitions live on the internet caused a tremendous amount of bandwidth to be tied up.
That means city computers might be working at a snail's pace under the strain.
Councillor Dennis Zine said taxpayers are not paying city workers to watch the Olympics on their computers or televisions.
Mr Zine said he wanted to know where supervisors were during the viewings.
