The whole world was watching

Posted By on Wed, Jul 8, 2009 at 5:45 AM

This memo went to UAMS workers yesterday:

From: UAMS Information Technology
Sent: Tuesday, July 07, 2009 1:17 PM
Subject: Urgent Message about UAMS Internet Usage
TO:                        UAMS Employees
FROM:                  IT Network Administration
SUBJECT:             Urgent Message about UAMS Internet Usage  
While it is understandable that many of our employees want to watch the Michael Jackson Tribute, the overwhelming use of the UAMS Internet for viewing this tribute has caused serious problems, including cancellation of at least one class and interruptions to our Poison Center operations.  If you are using the internet for personal purposes, please stop immediately so we can resume normal access for those who have a business need.  The UAMS Internet is for business purposes only.  Thanks.

[Editor's note: NY Times article indicates the worldwide web held up under the strain.]
