And they didn't have a backup site? Linked via a heartbeat link?

Does anyone nowdays know how to design a network? As in seperate sites, fibre linked... y'know - basic things that make it a little bit bit more secure and reliable?

Actually, if it wasn't so potentialy dangerous (due to the types of users), it would be quite amusing!

Yes, there are many of us but sometimes the client doesn't want to pay for it ('cos they spent all their budget on expensive consultants and we get paid whether the system works or not (I checked the contract myself!) ;) )
