I hate course registration

Background: northeastern University students are angry because the servers crashed for course registration.  smallpox explains what a server is here.
</span> I was slightly confused as well, so I looked up "server" in the dictionary. The first four definitions were:
serv·er (sûrvr)n.1.1. One who serves food and drink.
1.2. Something, such as a tray, that is used in serving food and drink.
2. An altar server.
3. Law. One who serves a writ or summons.
4. Sports. The player who serves, as in court games.
Thus, we can conclude that the problems today can be attributed to one of the following situations:
1. Someone who was getting breakfast for the people that maintain the computer systems that store HTML documents and other files that comprise webpages crashed into a table and spilled liquid into the machines, causing them to malfunction.
2. The people that maintain the computer systems that store HTML documents and other files that comprise webpages have employed young altar boys as assistants, and one of them crashed into something, injuring him and rendering him unable to work. With the lack of manpower, one of the machines was left untended to and subsequently went down.
3. The people that maintain the computer systems that store HTML documents and other files that comprise webpages were in the midst of being served with a court summons, when the person serving the document slipped on a coffee stain and crashed into one of the machines, causing it to malfunction.
4. During an outdoor volleyball game, the player who was serving the ball tripped over a shoelace, causing her to crash into the ground and the ball to fly through the window of the office of the people that maintain the computer systems that store HTML documents and other files that comprise webpages, hit one of the systems, and damage it severely. This is the most likely scenario, considering the weather.
