Mistakes at work suck. Especially if you were the British Airways IT worker, who accidentally switched off the power supply, disrupting tens of thousands of peoples travel plans, leaving them stranded all over the globe. The Times report that a power supply unit at the outage was in perfect working order and the paper reported that the investigation of the incident will state that it was a human error. British Airways’ parent company, International Airlines Group, recently explained that the supply of power to a key data centre was lost and an uncontrolled reboot of the system subsequently shut down the entire system.
