  Hi David,

  You are so right.   A few bucks would pay off in the long run.     My
secretary is the one who usually gets caught.    We do have a procedure in
AS400 where we can F21 and save the information to file but then to continue
we have to go through a few steps to get back to where we were.    It's not
always easy to remember to "save".    I've been fusing at the tech people to
put in a code to cause an automatic save of the data as one enters info.
The database base is similar to dos but still not easy to use.

    Carl: You definately should price a good UPS as you would not loose
power to your computer and monitor for enough time to save and exit
properly. They vary in price depending on how long you think you need. I use
the 1500 watt units but they are not cheap, about $600, however, I think the
650 watt are about $200 and you could talk to the salespeople and they can
advise you on how long it will last before you need to shutdown. It sounds
like you waste a lot of time if the brown out occurs when you are working
and you loose your data. Dave

      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.

      Carl

        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.   :-)

        Carl

          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.
