Routine Power-Cut Since Yesterday

One development which this earlier posting foretold, was that my power-utility needed to do work on their power-lines, and they had informed me via an automated message, that my power would be cut between 12h30 and 15h30 today.

One of the details which I would not trust 100%, is the exact timing of such a power-cut. Furthermore, yesterday, before I went to bed, I felt like this morning, I might sleep in. Which I did.

This implied, according to my thinking last night, that I could get woken at 10h00 this morning, by a power-cut, which was intended to take place only as of 12h30. And so around 22h00 last night, I shut down my computers, and battened down the hatches otherwise, so that my home would be ready for a power-cut by then.

As far as I can tell, the power-cut did take place within the intended time-interval. So maybe, I could have left the computer running overnight after all, and just shut everything down this morning after getting out of bed. But I was not sure of this fortunate turn of events, last night.

And as it goes, I also saw no point ins staying home, if for some part of my afternoon I’d have no computers to play with. I left this morning to follow activities outside, and came back home after my power had already been restored.

So my site and blog were offline as of 22h00 last night, until about 16h50 this afternoon.

Greetings again,

Dirk
