The power returned just after I made this post. I bask in the glory of the premise that they were waiting for the next update to my RSS feed. Or is that just due to the bright fluorescent lights? :)

Really sad to see that this power crisis is taking its toll all over the country. We are still far behind in basic infrastructure where major cities of country lack power and water supply.

It's not just PAK suffering power outrages. I had a night with no power in the UK's most industrialised city. Very rare though.
Pakistan would be a great place for solar energy. Not to sure on Wind though. What I would love to see is Pakistan taking the lead and developing a local solar industry. What I would hate to see is paying foreign firms to install technology to utilise our natural resources. Of course we can then export.
Can just imagine sitting on a manja, solar panel on roof connected to a 802.11 AP connecting to some remote network/node with a yagi antenna.
