Yesterday night power went off around here. I almost thought it was my tokens that got finished. When i woke up i found out even the neighbouring areas don't have power. I hope it comes back soon otherwise i have limited time of being around here. I hope before my laptop is drained it will be back

I don't mind,we are here to learn new things from each other What happens here we pay for our electricity as we use it. Tokens are like,the simple way i can explain to you,like internet mbs,when you purchase a certain amount you know how long it will last and then you can purchase more Did i manage to help you understand?

@Missmwngi Thank you for explaining this. I'm happy to learn something new here. Do you mean, the electricity is "pre-paid"? You have to buy the tokens first, then only you can use the power?

@Missmwngi I keep thinking 'I'll just do this while the power is off' then realise I need power to do whatever it it.

I have not experienced black out for a number of years. I think the last time was 20 years ago for a couple of hours. I hope that the government in your country can improve infrastructure so that you get clean water and electricity all the time.

Yes, I don't like when there is no power too, but to me, it's worse when there's no water supply. It'll be even more inconvenient to me. Hope the power will be back to you soon.
