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!

Ah that sounds bad.. I reckon you should buy a guitar, try an electric one… Fender seems to be good ;-).
How could you sent this message? I thought you had no power. 🙂
🙂 very observant young Bart! I managed to score 5 minutes on a machines that got battery. So there! 🙂
Patrick – guitar hunting this sunday. Hopefully i can find something ok for cheap. I went into a shop here and they had a 1930s Gibson acoustic! NOT FOR SALE. err
Man, anything electronic would either warp, get mouldy (camera equipment esp.) or go berserk in a climate like that wouldn’t it?
Damn.. 1930s gibson sounds good. To bad it was not for sale, but on the other hand if it would have been for sale it would have cost you $$$ :).
Btw, why do I have a French icon next to my name…
