RE: Sabotage cuts power to 18 million people

Unless you're main work computer (or personal) is a laptop or you have a
PocketPC device (with charged batteries.) Both in my case. Nope, I'm not
paranoid, just prepared. We've had two speeders take out power in our
grid in the last two years. Critical stuff is on UPS/Genset but not
everything. Nice to have a 'local' backup. The PocketPC is also a
cell/GPRS device. Yes, I know, but if it's bad enough to effect the cell
system, the power company is likely already on the job. ;0

Best regards,
Al Rowland

During some mild rolling brownouts here a while ago, I sent out the 
phone number of the local hydro company NOC to some stakeholders, 
and reminded them to write it down, as it won't be of much use to 
them if it is sitting in their email during a blackout. ;) 

Something to think about anyway.
