Bought a new UPS

Today, I bought a new UPS. A Geek Squad Model GS-1285U (1285VA AVR). It was kind of planned, and kind of impulse.

The CP1500VA that I was protecting my Linux box had failed about 1.5 years ago. But, since I made the switch to screen/irssi for my main IRC use....and recently having a Cox HSI outage, eventually getting me to remember how to make it use the other gateway (Y! DSL)....I decided it was important that it be able to ride out the occasional power flicker.

Today the opportunity presented itself that I could pop into Best Buy to grab a UPS....and there was the impending threat of an ice storm. Though UPS for Linux box and ice storm don't really jive...I bought the UPS, since walking 3 miles to Best Buy to buy a UPS wasn't going to ever happen...and definitely never gonna walk 3 miles back with it....it was heavy enough lugging it to the checkout line.

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.
