[R] Simulations in R during power failure

Hi everyone,

I recently ran a simulation on a computer using R that was hooked up to a UPS.  There was one time when the power was out for length and the computer shut down.  I was worried that I had lost the simulation, but upon booting the machine up, I heard the processor kick in.  It sounded like the simulation had resumed.

Does anyone have any experience with this?  Because I live in Florida and there is a possibility of another hurricane.  And I am running a huge simulation which may or may not finish before this hurricane finishes.

What options are there in saving a simulation and it picking up where it left off?
