Another fine mess

Just a little IT glitch:

Technical problems have forced half of the register offices in England and Wales to abandon a new computer system for recording births and deaths.

The £6m system, only introduced in March, crashed under the volume of data it had to process, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said.

Only £6m this time. Is that all?

Just seen that The Register has something on this, too. We hadn’t noticed that it was Siemens. Remember a couple of other stories about them?
