I'm reading about this story of a fire and flood at a BT telephone exchange in London and much of the chaos it is causing in its various forms for people and businesses across the UK.

It as got me to thinking judging by some of the comments left at the bottom of the page at The Register's Website how much reliance is placed on the likes of Computers, Phones, Mobile Phones, Card Payment Systems.

A fire at a BT building in central London is causing widespread landline, internet and mobile network problems, according to reports.

A blaze at Burne House in North Paddington was reported this morning.

According to Gradwell, a business ISP, 437 local exchanges and up to 37,500 Datastream circuits have been affected. It said the fire was having nationwide repercussions on communications.

Alright so its a fire and flood but I wonder if TPTB maybe looking at this for ideas, inspiration ?
