Last night a guy came up to me and said smoke came out of the computer area (he couldn't confirm that it came from the computer) and then there was a pop, and then everything shut off. There was also a dodgy looking space heater (?!) plugged in the same area.

Gandalf took a look today and there's no electricity in the power points in the gallery or the front room.

For now, no puters, and no Bill's video...

I can't really investigate this till Saturday or maybe even Sunday. Who plugged in a space heater and where is it now? Anyway, we need to figure out what, if anything, blew, what damage it caused, and what is still safe to use. Until then, I guess they have to be left off.

it wasn't infoseed, it was the computers in the cafe.

I don't know where the heater came from, but it was on upstairs. Maybe someone found it in the freeshop? I think Gandalf has it now.

I would ban plug in electric heaters and perhaps have a stock of old dressing gowns for people to put on. That's what I do at home to save on heating and it works great.

A little spartan perhaps, but that's reality now.
