A while ago, I wrote about buying an Unterruptible Power Supply (UPS) for my computer. This morning, I was playing around with the management software that came with it. It says that it has enough juice to run my computer and peripherals for about 38 minutes after losing power.
I suddenly had a thought. If I ran an extension cord from the UPS to my cable modem and router, I could theoretically remain online for about half an hour after my power failed!
It was at that point that I realized I desperately, DESPERATELY needed to get a life.
