Today in Computing History - July 13 - The Smart Ship That Went Dumb

"In an attempt to promote the stability and utility of the Windows NT platform, a new 'Smart Ship' was fitted with a Windows NT-based network. When one of the systems crashes, a domino-effect takes down all critical systems, leaving the ship unable to move for about an hour."

This is one of the events that I added to my 'Today in Computing History' project. Have fun!
