Sounds to me like you could use one of those USB gadgets...switch over to
emergency power in a nano sec..actually its even faster than that...Your
computer wont even know it was interrupted...
your power company is the pits man!
How could you run a busn like that...

Hi Trapper,

The word "brownout" is  a local slang word here in the Houston area meaning
that we lost total electrical power for a minute or two or sometimes as long
as 5 minutes.   I do not know what causes it.    The local rumors are that
the local power company is switching electricity from an area of "low use"
to an area of "high use".   This happens on a average of 2 to 3 times a
week.    My problem is when I'm working in the Farmers Insurance database
"the input data" is not automatically saved until we finish the entry and
"send" the data to Underwriting and then it's saved.    Sometimes it takes
30 - 40 minutes to input one policy.   When a brownout hits and I'm in the
middle of inputting information into Farmers AS400 system (the world's worst
software program), it's takes a lot of control to avoid saying words of
angry.   My office is located out here  in the suburbs and the heavy users
of electricity are those huge buildings in downtown Houston.    At times I
begin to think it's Enron employees practicing for another "Blackout" of
power in California.

  Hey,

  That's the very same one I have.
  No problems except;
  here in this part of Texas we have "brownouts" or power surges about 2/3
times a week for only a minute or two and for some reason I lose the cable
connection to Road Runner.   I have found that if I turn off the computer
(no power) and unplug the cable modem and unplug the router and wait 10
seconds and then turn every thing back on, my connection comes back up.   I
wonder if someone can explain why?

  The "brownouts" I do not understand either.    Someone explained a few
years ago that it was the power company making switches from one light use
area into a heavy use area, but why the brownout.

  Or, Maybe it's Enron pulling their dirty tricks.   :-)

    I have one, Elaine.  It has been very dependable & I have had no
problems with it.  Been using for almost 2 1/2 years.  Would not be without
it.
