Investigation: state computers may be obsolete
SACRAMENTO, CA (KGO) -- An investigation by ABC7's media partner the "Contra Costa Times" found many of the state's computer systems are teetering on the brink of collapse, despite millions in repairs and upgrades.
The report says many of the systems are so antiquated; they're making it difficult for the state to use them to help manage its money.
One example is the 1970's vintage computer system that prints state paychecks, which is in danger of failing.
The report says it's held together by software patches and make-shift connections.
