Even worse - I'm seeing the following error message. Looks like
someone's done something silly.


Server Error in '/' Application.
Runtime Error
Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current
custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the
application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It
could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server
machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be
viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within
a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the
current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its
"mode" attribute set to "Off".


<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
<system.web>
<customErrors mode="Off"/>
</system.web>
</configuration>

Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a
custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the
application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom
error page URL.

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
<system.web>
<customErrors mode="RemoteOnly"
defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
</system.web>
</configuration>

Fairfax's Press problems could have been avoided
Friday, 21 April 2006, 5:19 pm
Press Release: Engineering Printing and Manufacturing Union
21 April 2006

Fairfax's Press problems could have been avoided

The union that represents newspaper workers says that The Press newspaper in
Christchurch might have avoided the costly and embarrassing loss of papers this
week if it had kept on its electricians and engineers.

An electrical problem on the press at the Fairfax-owned newspaper has severely
affected production since Wednesday, with no home deliveries today (Friday) and
a much diminished product on sale in the city. It is understood that tomorrow's
paper will be printed by other newspapers around the South Island.

Engineering, Printing and Manufacturing Union national secretary Andrew Little
said that the company had laid off its in-house maintenance trades workers,
despite warnings from the union that it could lead to trouble.

"Maintaining and running a modern newspaper press is a highly technical, highly
specialised job," he said.

"The company might have thought it a waste of money to have an engineer and an
electrician on duty every night, but they are worth their weight in gold when
something goes wrong."

Mr Little said that he understood that the company that now contracts to do the
electrical work had recently advised Press managers to replace some electrical
components, but the advice had been rejected as too expensive.

Mr Little said that he would write to Fairfax chief executive David Kirk to ask
what the consequences of such poor decision-making would be for local managers.

"Mr Kirk might also wish to explain to local advertisers why their businesses
are being interrupted as a result of the local managers' decisions," Mr Little
said.
