uh,call me crazy,but perhaps you should take it's advice.
(remember to re-mount root as read-only with "mount -ro remount /".And make sure to not have any programmes running except the shell you're using.Then run fsck on the root block device (fsck will run fsck.ext2),then "mount -o remount /" to get back to read/write mode)

If no files were actually being writen when the power went out,then you've lost nothing.
