Obama Watchers Tie Up Hospital's Computer System

By  | 

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ The inauguration of President Barack Obama was shown live on the Internet, which caused a glitch at the University of Kansas Hospital in Kansas City, Kan.

The Kansas City Star reported Tuesday that employees were told not to watch the ceremonies on the Internet after an ``extreme high volume of traffic'' caused problems on the hospital's computer network.

The high traffic volume caused difficulty accessing some patient records.
