    United Airlines has another large computer outage (AP via Chron.com)

    I wonder how many IT personnel are going to update their resumes this evening?

    Additional: Reading over on TOBB it seems the problem is with the UA UNIMATIC weight and balance system and the legacy CO metal is unaffected.

    Meltdown is not a glitch.

    Computers do what humans tell them to do. That said, maybe some electronic part in the chain failed or something.

    And sometimes, the links of a chain need to be repaired or replaced before they rust into oblivion.
