I Think I Broke the Internet (or, Why I Love Student Workers)

We received the following ticket at the Help Desk today, courtesy of a former IT student worker and all-around great guy (apparently, super creative too!):

Subject: I Think I Broke the Internet

Dear Menlo IT badasses,

Today I decided I would be a little reckless. I decided it was a good idea to Google Google. Yes thats right, I Googled Google and now the world is melting down around me. There should be some sort of warning on the page to prevent catastrophic events like this from happening.

Anyway, I was hoping that the amazing people at Menlo OIT could perhaps solve this problem as I am sure the world is very mad at me. There are literally TCP/IP packets just pouring out of my computer and out of the ethernet cables in my room. HELP!

I learned my lesson and I promise that I will never do it again if you guys can get me off the hook this time.

Thank you!

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. It was really too good not to share. 🙂
