I'm converting with this:

mencoder "$FILENAME" -o "$OUTPUTFILENAMEINPROG.avi" -ovc x264 -x264encopts bitrate=450 nr=2000 vcodec=mpeg4:mbd=2:mv0:trell:v4mv:cbp:last_pred=3:predia=2:dia=2:vmax_b_frames=2:vb_strategy=1:precmp=2:cmp=2:subcmp=2:preme=2:qns=2 -oac mp3lame -lameopts cbr:br=128 >/dev/null 2>&1

but if it get's interrupted, how can I continue where I was? converting again the full video to that point where it got corrupted takes too much time..

Unless you are doing a 2 pass encoding you can't and even if you are you can only restart from the point where the 2nd pass starts.

You can't. You will have to start over from the beginning, and keep your cats away from the power strip this time. :)
