The server rooms in the basement are actually below the flood level of the river that runs fifty metres from our door.

This came to light when people were investigating the recent flooding of the basement caused when The Shed was finally connected to running water. The water supply for The Shed's sink was connected to the baement's decommissioned fire-sprinkler system, which hadn't been closed off properly. When water was finally supplied to The Shed, water was also supplied in firehose quantities to the basement.

Much kicking and covering of butts is now occurring in the main building.

Wow. It sounds like a bad comedy. How do you mess up this monumentally accidentally?

It was the Gold Coast - it's a special place.
