A bit more on the fire

The Daily Cardinal reports that there were no overhead sprinklers in the area of the fire yesterday. Fire fighters thought that sprinklers had gone off, but it was really a broken water pipe.

And there are no sprinklers in my office, either. I thought they were required, but I guess only in new construction.

There’s a short TV report (after a commercial) at the channel 15 site.

A graduate student interviewed said, “I have multiple copies of my data, but they’re all in that building.”

I hope we all learn from this: Off-site backups (at least with something like DropBox) are important.
