i have a Belkin that just bought the far.  last power outage, it kept my 
machines up for a whole, i don't know, half a second? :)

pulled it out, since when the power comes back on it doesn't want to restart.
dammit, now i need a new UPS.  and so close to moving, maybe i can limp for
6 months without a UPS.   *grrrrrr*
