Stuff Happens

IMG_5179This weeks is a timely reminder that stuff happens.

For the second time this year whole areas of the UK are deep in water. Thousands of homes are without running water. Thousands have been without power,  thousands more would have been if it hadn’t been for some remarkable work by the Emergency Services.

Yesterday a power problem in San Francisco affected a number of popular web sites.

People in IT talk a lot about contingency and resilience but sometimes you just have to acknowledge that you can’t allow for every eventuality.

One thought on “Stuff Happens”

  1. It seems a lot of people are having a hard time of it at the moment.
    Not quite the scale of the floods in the UK, but here in Spain, Barcelona has been without electricity for a couple of days now, and apparently it is set to continue.
