What browser do you use? Mozilla firefox and Opera can restore whatever you were doing before a power failure- most of the times. You should try it.

Yeah, it does give me bad mood too..But we can do nothing about it.. We can just wait for the electricity to come back and hope that what we were doing were not yet erased and we don't have to start all over.

I used to have that happen when I had dial up and I would get thrown off the internet. I would be right in the middle of Mylotting, doing research, and looking at different sites. Had about twenty tabs up and I get thrown off. Yes, talk about timing. I hate that so much!

Yeah, those were one of the things, i hate about dial up.. Which is why i was so lad when we had dsl. When i open dozens of tabs, i go to all f them quickly since the browser might malfunction or the computer might die. Opera has been closing all of a sudden recently.

Hi there. So we're both from same country. It really sucks. Here in Mindanao there is that thing they called "Rotating Brownout". I really hate it. Everyday there is a brownout more than an hour. It really sucks. I hope it they'll stop it soon. But I've heard in the news that Rotating Brownout will last until 2014. So bad.

Yeah, i wonder why you have that.. maybe the electricity supply can't take so many houses, there isn't enough for all so they give electricity to one part and then cut it and give electricity to other parts..

that really sucks. did you get to save your work? once i was writing a paper for school and we had a black out. i didn't get a chance to save my work. luckily, when the computer came back on, i was able to continue where i left off (by some chance).i wonder where you live that you keep having black outs.

I am happy that when it happened to me, there was still a battery on my laptop to back it up.

That's nice. I use my laptop too but the problem is I am not using a Broadband. I use wifi from a router in our home and router needs the presence of the current. It's still useless. Sometimes, I'll just try to make some photo editing just to energize myself.

Oh yes, of course the router would not function also when it's blackout. I think i haven't experienced doing the internet and it was suddenly blackout. It was always work on laptop when blackout happens, and then an automatic generator will be on when at the office.

Unfortunately, i do not have any laptop, just a pc. So when there is no electricity, everything is gone too. It'd be nice to have a laptop since you can bring it anywhere and use it as long as it's battery is still full.

So did you have to start everything from the beginning? Doesn't the program you're using have a feature that helps you start from where you left off?

That use to happen to me when my cord was bad and the computer shut off. Now I have a new one and it stays on.

it's nice that you bought a new one so there would be no inconveniences. Our computer or was it the power supply as overloaded before, which is why the computer got broken.. We fixed it now.

Yes, it is truly annoying, since you can't really restore everything that you did in the broswer, it's not Microsoft word. Welcome to mylot nikki .
