My neighborhood power transformer just went “bang” and everything has shut down around me for blocks around. I was very confused at first until I realized that the reason I was still happily talking on a conference call, staring at a brightly lit computer monitor and surfing wireless Internet was because I have a very nice battery backup.

It only lasts 90 minutes, though, and power outages in my neck of the woods tend to last quite a bit longer.
Hey – I have a generator! I’ve never used it before! And at the price of gas, I probably can’t afford to unless it’s actually an emergency.
Have a great evening. I’ll be offline.
