They gave me a new machine at work a few days ago … along with this new machine came a APC 750va UPS.
This is pretty cool, as I’ve been advocating having UPS’s attached to personal workstations for quite some time. I even went to the expense of purchasing my own UPS for my workstation before they got me the new one.
So today we had a power failure in the office … it was then that I found out that you have to pay attention to the outlet on the UPS you plug the computer into. I had inadvertantly plugged my computer into the Surge Protected outlet … not the Surge Protected & Battery backed up outlet.
So, when the power failed … so did my computer … my speakers, on the other hand, stayed powered up without a problem. 🙂
