Just hope that the FE doesn't object too much about it not being a helproom thread (unless we have any electricians in), but after the big blackout in America last week, it just seemed like probably the biggest news story we've had for a while.

How about a round of applause for the sterling work of the Power System Engineers who ensure that this is a very rare occurrence in Britain.
