Text advisory from Meralco

Got this text message from Meralco this morning. It says, “There will be a tentative 30mins, rotational brownout today, Mar 5, 2010 between 2:00PM & 2:30PM due to power supply deficiency. Your area may be affected.”

How sweet of Meralco (although I know its computer generated) to send millions of text messages to their clients to remind us of the rotational brownout schedule. With or without this reminder, I’m still not happy about it. Our area experienced a two-hour brownout yesterday when prior notice said it will be just an hour power interruption. I just hope stakeholders will find a solution to address the problem of power outages before election day comes.     

Hey, its 4:05PM in my watch and I’m still typing this entry. No brownout?!
