Failure to meet our Target

Home » Newsroom » Failure to meet our Target

Nowadays all you hear on TV is how this or that organisation (usually the NHS) is failing to meet its targets. Well, albeit on a smaller scale, TarvinOnline has its own targets. A key target is to publish at least 1 article by 6am every day except on major Bank Holidays.

electrical power, infrastructure

I am holding my hand up that this week the presses failed to meet the timetable until late morning due to a major power failure at one of the Editors' houses rending all communication ( including phones) useless. That's not a bad record as the first time in 4 1/2 years I would humbly argue.
Since we usually get about 50 logins before 8am I wonder what everyone did that day ( curse or bless the website?) As we are about to go on hols for a couple of weeks to escape likely freezing February weather and we had no hot water or CH, resolution of the outage took priority over a story.
A mixed blessing I guess for some but one we will not try to repeat for at least another 4 years. However the "London Bus" syndrome lurks in my mind as we will be "single legging" on the Editor front for a bit so do help and send some articles in please to reduce the workload on the remaining editorial brain.

He was successful and we have been successful every year since then. This is an award that the whole community should be proud of and share.
