Hi Tommo - WOW! That is a very bad situation. Just our of curiosity - if you don't mind me asking: do you have public supplied electricity? Or you do mean you have a generator running?

wow tommo you gusy are worse than us:) at more than crieket....jokes aside thats hectic to loose that much power, is it just that there is undersupply or have powerstations shut down, not enough cooling....i would ahve though you guys would have learnt to deal with the heat by now...
