Just read about the power. Spare a thought for one of my team that sent a text from Cyprus today saying he might not make it back to the UK in time to go work on Monday as expected. It rained big time in Cyprus, two floors of his hotel got washed into the sea, and then it caught fire. They were evacuated so quickly that he didn’t get any of his stuff. So now he can’t come home as he hasn’t got a passport!!

 

OK, so 24 hours without Internet doesn't seem so bad.
