• UPS:PCI "Boot>" prompt

    to: USR-PCI "Boot>" prompt

    Well it could be a lighting strike, something similar happened to
    my original 28800 USR Sportster a few years back ...

    $40 IC doesn't protect a three-cent fuse.

    Way of the world, ... , work of the Devil ... :-((

    This time, it worked the *right* way around. <VBG>

    Come to think about it, we did have a few lightshows around the time
    mine went dumb. My AC is all on UPSes or rather good power bars, but I
    may have circumvented the phone line, in order to reach a device, or
    to avoid me from finding another cable...

    Something I must still get myself here is a good surge protector, one

    I was able to finagle a dealer-incentive deal. I took an order for two, and kept four for myself. I
    understood later, that the design uses undersized thermistors. I had one of the
    same companies
    UPS communicate to Linux's USB "nuts" interface, but was never able to coheres any
    functionality into it.

    was on the shopping list along with a DVD-ROM/CD-Writer, but that took
    a dive when I got a bad case of the flu, and my lungs had a good go
    at suffocating me. Now I still owe the Doctor a few hundred Rands, but
    am feeling a whole heap better

    We takes what we can get. Glad to hear the health is better!

    ... <BG>, just shy the cash to buy the above mentioned items as a
    result. :-((

    If only it would help... I see UPSes sell for ten bucks for 1400VA units. The batteries are usually
    ka-put on them, but a forty bucks - or so - worth of battery usually brings them back to life.

    I also saw a few skids of Compaq 'puters being prepared for The Congo earlier in the day. The
    guy buys 650M P3s for ten bucks a piece, and ships them over seas.

    Yeah, just that the Congo 15000 + km's north north west of here ... :-(

    I'm hoping that Murphy doesn't hear me.

    Win some, and use immature, experimental modules for the rest. <G>

    Cheers!

    I think I've seen two or three Triplites in all my time attending the government auction, but the
    rest are APCs. It's odd, but I'm sure most of those are not troubleshoot once a
    battery doesn't
    bring them back to life. Mind you, the parts that protect the fuse are likely too costly to replace.

    ships them over seas.

    Yeah, just that the Congo 15000 + km's north north west of here ...

    Like my offer earlier, stuff would likely go missing before it made half the trip overland.
    Imagine, a thief twice as stupid as the government that spec'ed Compaq, IBM, and APC?

    Maybe I live in a glass house here, but I've had a Compaq sitting on my front stoop for most of
    the summer, and SMP servers - since I bought them - sitting under my balcony.
