Welcome to our periodic showcase of facepalm-inducing ICT photos found recently submitted on social media to Reddit's 'Cablefail' sub-community. Of this week's headline, for those who don't know, per definition by a reliable source, it's an expression often used, "To mean that a person is 'all that' and more.

"Brand new install, handed over to client -- and this is how the IT Dept. left it 2 days later."-- T.F., Essex, UK
