Actually electrical cuts haven't happened so much so far. They only happen, at most some 2 to 5 times a year. However, I've experience internet cuts every single days a few months by now and it's almost as annoying. Gladly the internet isn't off for such a long time...but it's still a burden.

We have had to go through this several times where we live at, especially when we have bad weather. I hate it when it happens. We bought a generator to hook up and run when the electric goes out so I can continue to work with my computer.

Thankfully this doesn't happen very often where I live,but there is sometimes a risk of something happening as a result of a lightning strike,or damage to power lines during a storm...Some people will unplug TV's or phone sockets during a thunderstorm to prevent damage to equipment..If you are concerned about data loss in those conditions,a UPS could be a worthwhile investment.

Hello, many a times I have been in such a situation. I take classes online. When I take my scheduled classes and suddenly there is this power failure.There is no time to inform the student on the other side. I do not know what to do. Sometimes the power supply resumes after a long time. This causes and had caused many difficulties.But everything is in the game

Hi adiel, Yes ... I have experienced it before. just a few days back, there is a blackout in our area during night and I was in front of my laptop. It is annoying because I had to turn off my laptop after sometime since the battery is weak. The blackout happen because the electric box (transformer) have been hit by car at the morning. They try to fix it in the afternoon but could not finish their job. So they comeback again at night.

definatly a problem with your electrical circuitry then, get everyone to get in touch as you blocking up there lines and sending in mail will get through to them to sort it out. consider purchase one of those surge protectors to prevent the sudden cut out of power effecting your electrical appliances as the sudden shock of it can break your appliances.
