Computer fiasco hits probation service

Well well, yet another screwed up public project, my that is a shock. On a y2k note I find this strangely encouraging. My reasoning runs thus:
People are already sufficiently suspicious of their computer output and used to working around them that if there are problems in the new year it'll be pretty much business as usual.
