Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

Vodafone's UK network wobbled a bit last night after scheduled maintenance work took longer than expected.

Parts of Voda's mobile network were down between 1am this morning and 8.45am affecting several hundred thousand of the operator's punters.

However, since most people would have been tucked up in bed at the time and blissfully unaware of the downtime, Voda appears fairly relaxed about the incident.

Indeed, El Reg only received one email asking if we knew why Vodafone wasn't available during the wee hours. That reader was based in Southampton and we can confirm that the outage was not just restricted to the Solent. ®
