I must admit I have been pretty guilty in the past of seeing disaster recovery press releases and almost rolling my eyes.
Well they are ten a penny I have to say in my defence.
But you may have seen that Incisive's Broadwick Street offices have been hit by a massive power outage and we actually have no firm idea when things are going to be fully up and running again.
The office had no running water, no toilets and no heating - not ideal in these temperatures to be honest.
Luckily we managed to get Monday's issue of CRN sent yesterday before the real problems started - but it was certainly cutting it fine.
Now the CRN editorial team are scattered around various parts of London and the south/midlands - working from home. But to make matters worse our email server is down at the moment as well.
Thank God for Twitter!
I'm sure it will all be up and running again soon, but it certainly made us all think about how we would cope if this became a more permanent occurance. Plus we have the disruption of the Olympics to look forward to in the Summer.
Bear with us! If you have any news please Tweet us for the time being and hopefully email will be up and running again soon.
I may have moaned about having to go into the office in dark and dreary January - but having to work remotely has also made me realise that I will take my daily commute any day to being stuck in an office on my own.
