Question: If you are working a regular 8-5 job, when KUB puts a pink note on your door at 1pm to say they will cut off power at 5pm, how do you deal with this when you get home at 6:30pm?
Answer: People with regular jobs don’t have the cash flow issues that causes such problems. Anyone hiring programmers? Looks like I’m on the clearance rack. I’ve got about 4 more hours of working for myself.

Funny. I just tried called KUB to get "I’m sorry. All circuits are busy now. Please try your call again later."

Insult to injury: The banks are closed today. I can’t even move money around!

I can get you a good deal on a genset or two… enough to power your ‘puter and a space heater or two.
