Haha :-),
Well......., it's not really a blackout because it only last a
minute or two.   Maybe we should call it a "Tiny B.O." for the
minute or two ones and if the outages last more than 10
minutes we could call it a "Big B.O.", with the understanding
that B.O. means BlackOut.   :-)

  Leave it to the Texans to screw up the word brownout. :O)
  Losing power for that long in California would be a black
out. :O)

  For all others that live outside the area of Texas, a
brownout would be when the
  power drops below 120 volts and the lights go dim, but not
out for a period of
  It's very hard on motors starting.

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