Darn you APC! lol

The upside to having a Uninterupted Power Supply (UPS) is that you can just keep typing away in a thunderstorm and not worry about the power going out or losing data right away! Weeee...

Okay, so the down side is that after you finish writing an e-mail that took you 2 hours to write.... and then the power goes out... the UPS does NOT save your network which promptly dies on being lost-of-electricity and then you can not send the e-mail you have been writing for the last 2 hours and just spell checking it as the power went out. Also, you can not begin to send it when the power comes back and the network comes back BECAUSE Microsoft Exchange will instead decide to flip out at you until you create a new e-mail, copy-paste your original e-mail into it, re-attach the 5 attached documents from folders all over your computer and then send it. OH, look, it decides to work.

duuuuuuude. Okay, so more microsoft and technology in general then APC, but heck, why don't they make Uninterupted Network Supplies??? HUH HUH HUH???

So, I'm stuck at work even though I'm pretty much wrapped up here. I'd go outside, but you know, 90 degrees... rain, wind, hail. I think I'll wait it out. :-)

(this would be an appropriate post to have a jack sparrow-style "but where has all the internet gone" icon, but alas, I do not have one)

Because they suck. Duh.

In other news I just got this message trying to comment:
Error running style: Style code didn't finish running in a timely fashion. Possible causes:
* Infinite loop in style or layer
* Database busy

Just thought I'd share 'cause I hadn't seen it before.

...I want some storms too!

Yay, APC
I think this is one:


Couldn't you just plug your network equipment into a normal UPS, though?

Re: Yay, APC
hmm.. this is true. Honestly, I never really thought about it. But every piece of network equipment would need to be hooked up to something. That would be hard to do. *shrug*

...and this is why I keep the router and switch plugged into my UPS, so I dont have this problem :-p
