1. Email at M&G was down for the whole day. Yes, the whole day. It’s still down. It’s the second time it has happened. If you have any emails for me, please fax them and then I’ll courier the replies back to you.
2. Whilst driving through Melville this afternoon there was a power failure. I spent an hour in traffic and missed the very important meeting I was supposed to attend.
3. The M&G Online, one of the country’s biggest websites, crashed this morning. More than half a million articles disappeared for two hours on the site. The CMS was inaccessible for the day and only restored to some extent in the afternoon. The editorial staff worked late into the evening frantically trying to catch up. Tony Blair resigned today? Really?
