Does the electric company get to decide which devices will be shut down first?

When one of the nuclear reactors in Finland had to be powered down unexpectedly about a year ago the grid operators call the biggest electricity consumers and tell them that they have to power down some of their machinery ("You'll have to cut your consumption by 40 MW, right now") so that the rest of the country can keep functioning.

That's terrible. A friend of mine did a run on using his phone yesterday and got 60/30 Mbit/s (up/down). Unlimited, naturally. Just because you're able to stream a Youtube video doesn't mean it works like it should. It's like saying "well, at least it's faster than biking" when you buy a broken car.

I do something similir to this to access my work computer from anywhere. The company doesn't provide VPN access so I've connected my work PC to my home network via VPN. In turn I can access my home network via the same VPN (just different credentials). The only downside is that if my work computer is rebooted I have to be there to initiate the VPN connection.

The event, being held every year since 2000 in the town of Savonlinna, saw quite a few mobile-phone throwers participate. The 2nd position went to Jeremy Gallop, a South African who managed to throw his phone 94.67 metres. Finnish public television network YLE covered the Saturday event [Google translated]. Contest organizers are of the opinion that users can vent their anger on their phones and that this offers a unique opportunity to "pay back all the frustrations and disappointments caused by these modern equipments.""
