It's not our fault, the engineer forgot the bit 

Many of us have been frustrated by third parties supporting or maintaining IT equipment; but this is perhaps a taking that frustration a little to far: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2006/07/13/fish4_goes_down/

It's an error message that was on their site saying "Thank you for coming to Fish4 this morning.
Unfortunately the fish4 website is unavailable due to the failure of a very expensive piece of Sun hardware (Sun 6900). A Sun engineer is at the data centre but didn't think to bring the replacement part with him."
