I don’t usually put anything too personal on this here blog, but these are exceptional circumstances. On Friday, chez Simon was hit by the flash floods which swept this part of west Berkshire. It could have been much worse: others in the same street had it much worse than we did. But we’ve got no broadband, and a lot more important things to do than muse on the future of news, e-government and all that.
If anyone was expecting any work-related communication from me this week, can I beg you to be patient. One of the neighbours has opened up their wifi network for emergency use, so my connectivity is going to be severely limited, although not completely dead. But being realistic, I’ve got to get my life back together, and everything else comes second for a few days. Please hold.
