Paper Failure

Paper Stack


The Office of Circumlocution is facing the prospect of a devastating loss of data following a serious error in its paper filing systems. Although the Office has transferred many of its records to secure electronic systems, it still holds a great deal of information in old fashioned paper files. Last night, as a result of a massive stationery failure, those files went down.

"We want to reassure people that their personal information is safe and that we are doing everything possible to get our systems back online," said Rachel Spokes, a spokesperson. "We're looking at the possibility that some of our staples may be at fault, but we can't rule out the potential involvement of treasury tags."

The Office of Circumlocution has already tried rebooting its filing cabinets and now specialist stationers have been brought in, and are currently debugging the ring binders. However, despite the initial announcement, the word is that senior staff are extremely worried that most of the material will not be recoverable at all.
