Well, we just lost power in the house for about fifteen seconds, but it’s nice to the that the UPS that the server is running on actually works. I should probably remember to install the PowerChute software on the new machine soon, so if I happen to be asleep at, say, 1:53 am, it’ll turn itself off if the battery runs out.

P.S.: Remind me to buy a bigger UPS at some point, so it’ll run on battery for more than 16 minutes.
