In a rare state of sobriety, an eagle-eyed Reg hack spotted a mysterious sign stuck in the window of BT's shop in London's Oxford Street this morning:

"Due to technical issues, this store will be closed until further notice."

On checking with BT central, it transpired that over 50 BT stores across London failed to open due to a networking glitch which disabled cash tills. A BT spokesperson told The Register that the problem had affected all stores in the capital and that they were slowly coming back on line.

"Closed until further notice? That normally means the manager's drunk." ®
