Breaking: SD Computer Network. Culprits: Sensible Shoes...

...and some guy in stripey bibbers.

Evidently the statewide computer network is broken this morning, with the City of Sioux Falls, Minnehaha County, and half the K-12 network unable to log on.

If you believe the graphics on KELO, the culprits are some big shoes and a pair of stripey bibbers:

Actually, "a fiber-optic line was cut during renovation of the state library in Pierre" this morning. Oops. Notice the effective use of the passive voice to avoid assigning responsibility.

Update 10:35 CDT: That Sioux Falls paper and surely-peeved BIT commissioner Otto Doll need no passive obfuscation of the obvious: they say simply that contractors cut the line.
