Cricket to cause “Meltdown”

September 6th, 2005 at 10:51am

British Companies have been warned that they face a computer “meltdown” as zillions of british workers use their computers to track cricket scores during the fifth Ashes test.

One of the quotes from computer firm Network General was quite interesting and amusing

While every company is aware of the risks posed by computer viruses, few will have ever considered Ricky Ponting and Michael Vaughan’s men a potential threat to their computer networks

Interesting, this could be an opportunity to semi-solve the problem of yesterday’s “cricket score statusbar” searcher.

I personally use the resources of Channel 7 to keep up to date with cricket scores when I’m not near the TV, just hover on cricket and click scoreboard, and hey presto (or bingo, or bingo bango bongo) you have live cricket scores & stats.
