    How do you "cope" with the blackouts?

    I have a small Ultralan Li-Ion 12V / 9V UPS which keeps Fibre and Wifi live - it is very efficient. For my laptop and screen I use an inverter and older, large lead-acid batteries when needed. The inverter will also power the TV if necessary.

    This is simply extortion under another name! Sapo was laid to waste by poor management, union action which broke down all services, bad worker attitude, non-delivery and theft.

I am looking at an application in a larger building with 3-phase power, where most but not all areas which I want to reach...

    When is the last time you posted something from the Post Office?

    I still occasionally receive small items in the post from China. But I will not risk sending or receiving anything valuable or urgent. Between poor management and union action, the Postoffice has been wrecked. I pity the exceptions - post office staff who did their best and offered friendly...
