Intro: No Power? No Problem :-P
We had our power cut for 6 hours today while our electricity provider was working on the power grid in our neighbourhood.
Me, being a geek and all, I just could not stand not having internet so I borrowed my dad's 12->240VAC inverter and his 12V 33AH SLA battery.
I connected up my modem, my wireless router and my sisters Nintendo DS to charge.
I also had our 2.2kW generator running for a little while to get the fridges cooled down, but I don't have any pics of that.
