Exactly.

I only lost power for 5 hours. What the hell. It was good to give my
wrists a break from the keyboard!

With all of the media coverage you’d think we had another ice storm.

What has the power outage to do with the keyboard ?!?

A good computer has no problem with 5 hours power outage

Re: Blackout

I think its just the enormity of it. People all wondered what caused
it…what happened…was it terrorism. Most ice storms don’t cover all of
new england, michigan and Ohio. I think its newsworthy, and deserves
attention. they may be dramatizing it, but that happens with everything.

Carpel Tunnel.

Computers mean nothing when the cable doesn’t work.

Re: Blackout

Hmmm, I don’t think it’s hype to cover an event that affects, what, 50
million people or something? Yes it’s just power, but tell that to the
people stranded in elevators, or who depend on mass transit to get home,
who planned on flying somewhere, who were stuck on rollercoasters at an
amusement park, or tell it to my 85 year old Grandparents who had to go
sit in their car last night to cool off from the 90-degree heat.

When it’s such a large area, it’s a little different than a normal power
outage (not to say that it’s worth all the hype – I wouldn’t know about how
much hype there’s been as I haven’t had power :-).

e.g. When there’s no place within the range of a full tank where the
gasoline pumps are working. Also for the entire subway system to shut down
is a unique event. etc.

Welcome back! :slight_smile:

The hype was 24 hours of nonstop coverage of the heroic New Yorkers…

I know the feeling, The fall/winter before last we were with out power maybe
10 times 3 were over 3 days and one was for 5 days with the high temp in
the single digits.

Last summer they finely got off their ass and started trimming trees along
the powerline right of way, no power maybe 3 time since but it was up the
next day. I still stick a mini mag light in my pocket every T-storm at
night.

In this situation, I quess You have some squaremeter photovoltaic,
some hundred Ah buffer batteries and some energy optimized
equipment to have no problems with this power outages.

A refrigerator with vacuum insulation to use much less power,
only notebooks instead of the energy wasting desktop computers,
an USB receiver to see television on the notebook with much
less energy than with a CRT TV set

In this situation I suspect you would be suffering withdraws from your
computer. Short winter daylight + cloudy skys + snowfall would render the
large solar panels ineffective.

My Sharp Zaurus would provide my computing needs, and some entertainment,
with an external battery pack. (charged from a large 12vt deep cycle marine
battery)

TV is a waste of energy, Stick with a radio (With headphones) for
entertainment and news. My main emergency radio is a BayGen hand cranked
receiver.

Outside is a better place to store food than inside in the winter.

I am just searching for investors for a electric improved bicycle.

One of the possibilities of this special bicycle is to be used
as a human powered generator.

Generating power by Your muscles, You would soon feel the
difference between a notebook and a desktop with CRT.
