The power of power

All it seems to take in Bangkok for a suburb’s power to cut out is a slight wind or, as one of my colleagues Salvo said, a bird to fly over our building and piss on it.

With a deadline looming and anxious clients bopping around the place all we can do is sit and wait.
Luckily we have some UPS (“uninterruptable power supply”) gear so some of the machines can continue running on the battery and one of the power outlets that seems to still be working.

For me, I am just hangin’ out and trying to deal with no AC (both the power and cool air kind)

Might be time to go buy a guitar!
