Blogging under all Circumstances

Yesterday, I’m almost done with my Sabine Schmitz post, when suddenly all lights go out and my happy little world goes black! Arrgs! Of course the announced loadshedding by South Africa’s most beloved state-owned company, our electric power supplier Eskom. 😦 By god how I hate them. Received all the funds to update the electrical grid and build new power plants already 25 years ago, but never made it happen. They fleeced their own pockets and half the management is going in and out of jail permanently. 😦

Anyhoo, me – totally engrossed with blogging – forgot the power outage and was kinda surprised by it. Fortunately I was as good as finished and just needed to press the Publish button. Which I didn’t do before the lights went out. But now I was curious; did WordPress save the last changes, is the story ready to be sent out? So I enlisted hubby and his smartphone’s assistance …

Modern shit. 😮

Aaaaand we jumped into the 21st century!!!

Publishing from a cellphone!

During blackout!

That was a first even for hubby while untechy me was totally flubbergasted. Had to make a photo of this great achievement for hubby. No idea how he did that … and will probably never understand it.

Naturally camera shy fukker that he is he refused to appear in the photo but you can be assured his fingers aren’t even 10 centimeters away from the phone. 😉

Thank you, my super duper husbando! xoxo

What I think blogging should look like:

That’s more like it! 😉

    • Thx Anon, but aren’t UPSes in reality only made to make sure the computer will shut down in a controlled manner and not just be killed off? Since I’m on Linux it won’t matter much. You can switch off Linux at every time you fancy. Just pull the plug, your Linux system will be largely unimpressed. 🙂

  1. 🙂 Here in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, the electricity company will let us know in advance the day and the time that they are going to take electricity (This usually takes place when they are fixing light poles or electrical lines).

    My internet service provider is the one I need to be concerned about (They can have an outage at any time; but thankfully, it rarely happens).

    • Yes yes, Eskom let’s us know in what stage of of loadshedding we are at any time and at what times the lights will go out in our village, town or city or suburb. I was just a forgetful gurl. 😮
