    We're at a stage 3 power alert. That means that power reserves are less than 1.5%. That means there's a good chance we will get roaming blackouts tonight and tomorrow. [​IMG]

    The problem with this situation is illustrated by this equation:

    No power = NO DIABLO 2 OR INTERNET PORN! [​IMG]

    Nooooooo!

    California is having lots of problems lately. Luckly I live in the energy capital of the world, Huston, Texas. Energy is so cheap here. [​IMG]

    I've got it! I just have to get a UPS with enough battery power to support two computers, a 19'' monitor, and a 15'' monitor for at least 2 hours! That should get me through the blackouts! [​IMG]

    Now all I need is $2000 to get me a UPS with that capacity. [​IMG]

    It's not that expensive You can pick up an APC 2000 for $700-800 USD. Throw in an add-on battery and you're looking at about $1000. Got one under my desk. Works good but reeks to high heaven. Ew.
