Battery backup at home went off today BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! Everything shuts itself down and I go to reboot the UPS when *sniff* *sniff* ah yes, the distinctive smell of burned electronics. So that's it finally. Adios APC BackUPS 350. You will torture us no more with your intermittent failures!
Now I have to look for a new UPS. Preferrably small in size (it has to go under my desk) and monitored. APC's successor to the UPS model I had wasn't monitored last time I checked, maybe they've got a newer model that is though. If not, I'll have to look at other manufacturers and then that means looking at software support, etc.
Oh well, out with the old! Happy New Year's!
