L.A. Workers Told To Stop Watching Olympics OnlineCopyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
LOS ANGELES -- The top technology officer for Los Angeles is pleading with city workers to stop watching the Olympics online at work, saying it could cause a municipal computer meltdown. City officials say watching Tuesday's women's gymnastics and soccer competitions live on the Internet causes a tremendous amount of bandwidth to be tied up.
That means city computers might be working at a snail's pace under the strain.
Councilman Dennis Zine says taxpayers aren't paying city workers to watch the Olympics on their computers or televisions.
Zine said he wanted to know where supervisors were during the viewings.
