A reboot just bit me too. I had a dozen+ tabs open in two browsers researching something, 2 instances of VS. I was in the other room eating dinner when I hear the BIOS beep from my computer.
Thanks a lot Windows Update KB4074588. That was absolutely not planned or communicated.

4.2 Magnitude apparently, about 20km NNE from Swansea. A quick check on Google maps, and it was about 5 km from us.
The devastation is horrendous.

Send aid money for rebuilding now! Send it to me, and I'll coordinate it...
Still, explains the series of noises a few days ago: about 4am I was woken by a noise like a Parkinson's patient with a tea cup and saucer. Lasted maybe 30 seconds, then stopped. few minutes later, it's back. Could I find what it was? Nope. Now I know - probably a very small series of foreshocks.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

Griff: Had a quake in Swansea.
You: Perhaps it was the one in Nantes 5 days ago.
Me: Swansea and Nantes are a long way away.
You: I am talking about the one Griff felt a few days ago.
Me: Was he in Nantes then?
You: What are you talking about.
In 2004, there has been an earthquake in Beaume-les-Dames (5.2 magnitude). I was home in Lyon and could feel it since my bookcase became suddenly shaky. Hence my question.
Now, I checked and indeed Swansea in quite far from Nantes. But on a geologic scale, not that far. I thought both these events, happening in a few days' window, could be somehow related.
