That's the second power cut in a fortnight round here, and judging by the outage tracker it's again taken out a sizable chunk of Fareham.

It was actually a little disconcerting: the lights flickered for several seconds before the power went for real, followed by random battery-powered widgets complaining that they were now using battery (at least the smoke alarms were quiet having had their batteries replaced after the last power cut...).

For all I rant about modern tech it's nice when failover actually works!
