Electricity blackouts again
« on: August 10, 2012, 01:46:37 pm »
I think this is bad for hardware..imagine a hdd writing and stopping there suddenly..and they aren't going to pay if it break!
Is there any electricity company that doesn't cut it?
I'm getting really pissed

Bro you cant choose an electricity company just like how you choose a phone line or something Hikz .Power cuts are area specific.

You will last only 10 min max the 600-650VA you need to go for a Generator or at least an Inverter

Kalubowila doesnt get cut :P

May be due to the hospital

Ya an UPS might be a life saver, and 10 mins is alot of time in case of an emergency.

I think that would be my next hardware update, if this power cuts are for real.. lol
Make a decision that you will not regret..!

Yeah it sucks. Everytime the current goes off I ring electricity board the next moment. Haha has been going on like this for the past 3-4 days. And today the lady got pissed off and told me in Sinhala "Powercuts will often occur. Learn to get used to it". LOL.

No powercuts in NE today... Hmmm since kotte didn't get cut today then I hope the powercuts may be gone temporarily...
