Wonderful example of "complicated systems break" (and, since I assume there's no intention of attributing PM issues to the leap second, ++).

[stevieb]: so, it's -34c today, and some of my water pipes are frozen and one burst. sigh
[stevieb]: it doesn't seem as though "there's an app for that"
[ambrus]: burst water pipe sucks
[Corion]: ambrus: Ugh - yes, that really sucks!
[stevieb]: good thing is that both sides of the break are completely frozen, so I was able to shut off the water to the building before any water leaks. I told the landlord last year to insulate that specific area better
[Corion]: stevieb: Our SV overlords don't know what "frozen pipe" means and think it's something like "frozen yogurt"
[ambrus]: huh... what does "SV" mean there?
