Liverpool City Council has burned down. Reported here in the SMH.
Listening to the Mayor being interviewed on radio this afternoon; you get the sense that the data loss and impact will be huge. I don’t think she [the Mayor] seems to get what a problem they have. They believe they have backup tapes “from last Thursday”, but don’t seem to have computers to restore them to. They believe they’ll have *a* computer in a temporary office, “but no email”.
Listening to this, I just thought, what a f**king disaster! What genius decided that a DRP was not worth having? (Unless of course this has all been reported incorrectly). If not, this will be a great case study.
