happened to me last night just as Big Bother was coming to an end. It took me back to 1973 and the excitement of being a child, lighting candles etc. But then I remembered that the Boiler wouldn't work ...

Anyone know what was going on? (I know the Riverside Bar had a cut earlier)

When I rolled in, I noticed that the cooker time was flashing. Second one must have been about 10.30?

Two very quick cuts they were too - a good deal less than a second each time. Enough to make the lighhts go out, but not enough to turn off my Nokia Freeview box.

Had 2 powercuts quite late on (Tower Bridge Road) - on our side of the road the lights came on again after about a second but the other side still looked black.
Happened again not that long ago - I live 2 doors from the Hartley, they had lights etc... we had candles.

Ah, yes, sorry about that everyone.

Next time I will read the manual before plugging in my stereo.
