If I had a dollar for every time I typed "your" in my haste instead of "you're" I'd be going on another cruise! We all make mistakes!!


Thanks for encouraging me.
GoodmanHi jackson,
I would just say "power outage" which is more mainstream. Power supply is a component in any electronics which converts the power from the wall socket to a designed DC voltage for the
device to work. i.e. 12 v DC power supply is what is universally deisgned into the PC for the hard drive. The 5 volts Dc for the logic etc.

You can alos say "our building lost power..". Just food for thoughts...
Thanks, Goodman.

Both are odd and unnatural. Power cut is more common http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/british/power-cut
