We lost all our elastic-trickery yesterday, apparently some underground cable went pop, and plunged the south of Liverpool into darkness, at first the lights flickered, then they went dim, and just as I was saying to Ruth “I think we are going to lose our power…” It went all black.
It does make you think though, it’s not exactly a grid this power thing is it? One cable goes and thousands of people are without power, why couldn’t the power just come in from another cable ?
followup: blueyonder have a support ticket for why the internet went off, as if people where phoning (on there mobiles) telewest, complaining. also, why do they apologise? it’s not their fault.
what is their fault, is the fact you can’t see our website just now…
