Bleh. The batter(y|ies) in my UPS ha(s|ve) decided to finally die. Of course, this does not happen at a convenient time so that I could wander on down the road to "The Battery Bloke" and order some new ones, oh no, here we are in the middle of some craziness to do with the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere (longest day of the year where I am) so everyone has shut down for some rampant consumerism. Fortunately, the power is pretty reliable where I am so the UPS is really more for comfort value in the face of storms and the like. I can plug everything direct into the mains and soldier on until the new year.
