    If you try and open the images in a new tab, that works.

    EDIT: Correction, they did when the links weren't sending me to the CDN.

    Right you are!

    Bloody heck @sister_annex, that's no good! Hopefully that's the only casualty?

    It was the only casualty thankfully... but it really does make you think!!

    what was even more worrying was the server it was connected to was still on - the hard drive was fried but there was will power going to the machine...

    Wouldn't happen to be Amphenol connectors would it? We had exactly the same happen here a few months back - think they were in some ageing HP kit. We then checked every server and desktop to replace similar components - did a bot of googling at the time and it's known to happen with this particular manufacturers' component.

    Not sure but it is HP kit that it came out of, apparently HP issued a recall on that particular part number but we didn't know that until we phoned HP this morning!

    Yeah it was nothing too bad tbh just a failed server and the headache of sorting that out.

    It's just one of those things that makes you think! I've been at this school for 10 years and never seen anything like this!

    Thanks for your concern though
