    Our Business Manager phoned down to ask if I'd felt anything.





    I said no, but she had been on the verge of leaving the building.




    Hmmmm ............. I felt nothing but the earth had moved for her!!


    Typical!!

    Typical, I stop working in the lakes and move back to Yorkshire and the earth moves right in the town where I worked, I'm sure that one of the IT team from the school I've come from can be poked to post on here seen as the Beeb say it was in Ulverston which is where they are

    Was in the middle of VMware training when it happened, everybody had just restarted machines when the whole room stated shaking! We couldn't work out what it was at first as there are various things near by that could have exploded (chemical, gas, nuclear etc). Kids were a bit hyper for the rest of the day. Will have to check the CCTV for shaky cameras!
