Whenever I have a blackout I have to go to Video Ezy and hire the disc so I can catch up with the bits I missed whilst slumped unconscious in front of the TV. :ph34r:

flick off your mains and see what happens
Shit. Just did that. Wierd.

Did a search but couldn;t find the answer. but

I reckon Pint of lager (a poster not often seen here anymore) had the answer.

If no one can find the link, it was a log-fired kettle.

cheers

Which also made some pretty good beers, Oktoberfests (edit, now that I am remembering better it was Viennas) especially. Pity that like many, she disappeared in the noise caused by people making beer in their Grannies old curtains......

if you flick the power off mid boil, the BM remembers where it was up to in the cycle, so if it is just a short outage nothing too untoward will happen. As for a brown out I would unplug it ASAP! it will fee the circuitry.

I'd have that bling on a safe circuit. A lightning strike in your neighbourhood would fry it quicker than you could say, "two thousand dollars."

ask Pocket Beers - he tested it well at Ross's during system wars when the power tripped constantly. It just kept going and the beer at the end of it was brilliant. These were only short lived blackouts - long enough to stop Ross serving customers because all of his computers were out. :(
