December 26th Power Outage

Well, looking to see if there was a kluge to prevent the disaster to my home network that the power outage caused.

I noticed that my desktop is set to LAST for power recovery. Then I remembered that it is the only system with a UPS link, and that the UPS probably told it turn off moments before it stopped completely. So, when power returned, it stayed off.

So, browsing through the event log.

I see power blinked a couple times around 00:38. But, later went out completely at 07:36:21.... And, then 11 minutes later (@ 07:47:03)...it reported that my network connection dropped. That would be the overworked UPS the runs my Linux box, the WiRNS/DVArchive/Poopli Server and all my networking equipment. Perhaps an upgrade or a spreading of the load is in order.

30 seconds later, my machine started its shutdown. No immediate plans to replace its UPS....

No idea when the UPS for my phone stuff tanked....Might move the network stuff over to that UPS. And, put the old APC 500VA UPS back into service for the WiRNS/DVArchive/Poopli Server.

Don't really want to buy more UPSs.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
