- More web woe as Baldy strikes again
Imperial College Union?s once again demonstrated its seemingly endless ineptness at running web servers last week when the Union web server died for the twenty-millionth time this year.

Surely the choice of operating system must be to blame.

No one at Beit Towers could be reached for comment.
