A rude awakening
Being too minimalist can backfire, big time!
Ideas to stay working
Netbooks for the win
You can always have a light weight cheap Netbook to do some typing on the go, which won’t replace your desktop setting, but is great for typing away in a coffee shop (if you have 10 hour power outage a day, you will frequent a coffee shop to work!), I got one myself and blogged about it so feel free to check it out from here.
These are just ideas I suggested, you know your flow and what works best for you, and try to make it work.
What is your idea of a backup plan, does it involve another computer? Or are you the laptop hating kind?
