I saw it on CNN but it sounds like it wasnt as bad as they wanted to make

East lost utility and I dont know about stuff in the South which is where
the power was out.. seems theres not much of interest there from a netork
pov.

None of our network (mainly west London) was affected. Media reports that it
just hit [mainly residential] south London, so didn't affect either Docklands
facilities nor the various datacentres in the west (Park Royal etc) and
south-west (Heathrow).

It did knock out most of the tube system by my experiences. Fights at bus
stops; so much for the 'stiff upper lip' ;-)
