ATTN: R&D – Employ Patience
There was a slight mix-up during a routine batch generation where 14 clones were lost numbering 9901-9915. This lead us to the formation of a new rule regarding patience when the system is busy. So this is for everyone in R&D, please don’t keep mashing the generate button if a clone doesn’t instantly appear and you’re getting a ‘not responding’ error, because as a result, 14 clones were generated at the same time, creating a massive (and very messy) amalgamation which fortunately did not live very long.
Also, using the emergency sprinkler system to “hose down the area” only made a bigger mess which managed to flood it’s way down the corridor, disrupting the entire department and losing several days of productivity.
