As Sirocco marks five years since the creation of the Glorious Dictatorial Republic of Andersonia, the Times is opening up its archives to present articles not seen since they were first published in the Andersonian Times all those years ago. Join us as we take a trip down memory lane to simpler, if stranger, times. Some details will be slightly altered so as to protect the identities of some persons involved – these details are underlined.
Today’s article from 6 April 2009 reports on a computer breakdown, which in typical Andersonian fashion was reported as a hacking. The computer in question, an already fragile Vista computer from early 2007, was revived a few days later, but only weeks afterwards died completely. The tower now resides in the possession of the National Centre of Computing’s Havilland maintenance centre, where it has not been switched on in over five years.
