Lightning does strike twice, at least it did here at Alexandra Palace today. There was a very loud bang, followed by panels opening in the roof, causing rain coming into the main hall, where we were all sitting with our laptops, and where lots of PA equipment was set up. The fire system automatically opened the roof when the lightning discombobulated it.
We all went into the entrance hall, and sat around on the bean bags for an hour or so until we could come back in. Wireless access is still sporadic, which makes coding against public APIs rather difficult. Despite this, I've nearly finished my hack,
I've uploaded some photos on Flickr.
