Crash, bang, wallop: What a power-down. But what hit the kill switch?



I once had a system was no backup tape; they told me "back up 1 disk to the other"

"what if there's a power cut?"

"you're on a UPS"

Then a technician plugged a vacuum cleaner into the UPS, 4 times running, and blew it.

I politely inquired as to why she was not shot at dawn.
