UK under water:
Yesterday morning, the lake
at the Sanger centre had grown considerably. By lunchtime,
one of the overflow car parks was flooded, and in the middle
of the afternoon, a message went round saying that one of
the transformer rooms was threatened. The network was taken
down, and large parts are still missing (well, actually
maybe not such large parts, but since we can't access some
vital NFS servers...). Fortunately, there's power for my
laptop and a connection to the outside world.
All quite irritating, since it means I don't stand much
chance of accessing a database I'm supposed to be working
with. But I guess it's a chance to catch up with e-mail and
some coding loose ends.
PS. Rumour has it that a small island has
just reappeared in the middle of the (still swolen) lake.
Maybe things are getting back to normal.
