Thanet District Council Fire

Just a short note to say that the council’s computer server room has caught fire so they will probably have a reduced online service.

The picture is of Margate Firestation

Update after about 6 hours the conventional media have caught up with this story.

The BBC say:

A small fire caused by an electrical fault at council offices in Kent has led to a reduction in services.

  3. I'm sure councils at the moment don't have the cash to spend on rescilience plans of that magnitude. Not even a firm like Google would have redundant data centres standing idle 'just in case', very wasteful way of doing things.
