Boing Boing: Because of one faulty NIC card, 17,000 were stranded at LAX

Sounds like a cheap network card did a broadcast storm, and whatever ancient networking equipment Customs is stuck with in LA couldn’t deal with it. Must be running on hubs or REALLY old switches. It should be a wake-up call that something so simple can cripple a vital system. It should have been elementary to identify the problem and fix it within minutes.
