Tag Archives: UPS
This came to me via the UPS just a couple of days after Christmas. I didn’t post it right away as I wanted it allow some time so that it could stretch out its little limbs and get used to the new surroundings. Thanks Gwen!
Some facts about him:
Common name – Christmas Cactus
Scientific name – Schlumbergera bridesii

Which I got from Fernlea Flowers
About 3 years ago, I purchased 3 of APC’s medium end UPS (uninterruptible power supply) for the home server and all the little gizmos for the home network. Mainly I bought these for when I was hosting my own server, but now I mainly use them to help protect against surges.
Well, last night I had a short black out. It was around 8pm when everything just want dark! The only thing that was light was my cordless mouse. I got out the old flash light, went outside to make sure that it wasn’t just my house and sure enough. The entire block was out. Wow! As I started to silence the beeping on the ups’ , the power came back on.
Then I thought to myself, “Oh jeez.. I am gonna have to wait for like 5mins before the server and the dsl modem comes back online” OH no! Not this time, as they were on a ups and it was just a matter of me just booting up my computer and start surfing.
I am still playing with it, there are like a million buttons and hidden connectors all over it.
The manual is layout very nicely, but since I have never owned a video camera before this one. I main be over stepping my bounds here. However, if I can figure stuff out, then most should. So, with that said. You most likely can start looking foward to seeing some video footage popping up.
