I got it that The Server was down.

I must admit that my UPS has been working overtime this evening. It's earned its keep. Three power outs and lost Internet connections, but then I'm in the Scottish Free State so one has to expect that kind of thing now and again.

We have an overdose of rain, some wind but nothing spectacular. However I've just had those three shout Power outages which the UPS took care of.

It's a bit weird when everything, including the Street lights go out and the PC carries on. I've got sufficient reserve for just over 10 minutes, so long as I turn the Printer off.

Where I live, we have recently experienced three electricity sub-station explosions, which caused a few headaches for both the general public and commerce. Fortunately, the repair people were soon on the ball, re-routing supplies.

Just goes to show how dependent we have become, with most items now being electricity powered.
