Re: The big red button

Fricking APC. One series of UPS had a cable for Unix and a different cable for Netware/windows systems.

Regarding TFA: this is why I like systems with dual power supplies. Put one on UPS, tbe other on utility power. The UPS line saves the day when the utility power drops, the utility power line saves the day when the UPS drops. In some areas the utility line is the reliable one in this equation.
