Sing I The Praises Of The UPS

I finally got around to reconfiguring things around here and put that UPS that I got a couple weeks ago into service. Now, unless you have a UPS (or a laptop), you have no idea how awesome a feeling it is the first time it goes into action. Oh, to be working on a forum post when the power goes out three times inside of thirteen seconds and then decides to stay there, I, basking calmly in the light of my screen, oblivious to the chaos of young siblings proclaiming near and far that the power has gone out.

Until, of course, the chirps of that most brick-like of saving angels grow more worried of the impending doom of an empty battery. Then one must, unfortunately, finish the forum post, power down the server, and shut everything off, awaiting eagerly such time as the electrons cometh again.
