Just as well that most businesses are shut. Those drones obviously don’t work very well but then again they were only trying to find the oracle’s inflated ego not network faults

Buck-up

Growers in lofts overloading the supply drying it out for the Christmas smoke to cope with over hyped kids, boring rellies and stressed other half.

Hang on. Remember the headline on 17th November – SSEN takes to the sky: Innovative technology to keep the power flowing. Well that didn’t last long.
