    Howzit all,

    Anyone in Brackenfell or surrounding areas experiencing load shedding or something?

    We received nothing about load shedding so I did not prepare for this.

    How long will my inmates be fine for without power?

    Thanks
    Jason

    Just make sure that the water gets oxygenated.

    Normally temperature is a problem but it's warm enough no to need a heater.

    Damn that sucks, normally in load shedding they dont cut the power of the traffic lights but this time I see they did. Majority of the robots in Brackenfell also off... Think ill be gettings a UPS soon...

    @Jason it shouldn't be more than 2 hours - ours were off from about 14:00 to 16:00. A buddy there said it's scheduled for Brackenfell from 16:00 till 18:00.

    Shouldn't have problems with only a 2 hour cutoff.
