I'll see if I can set this up sometime in the next few weeks.  I don't  
know if I have long enough of a cable, though, at the moment for the  
primary UPS (Matrix 3000).

One thing that might be nice is a client version of the daemon which  
would simply be compilable on OS X so that I could plug the UPS cable  
into a USB/Griffin and reprogram the alarm tests and front panel  
display among other things.  Every so often at 18 past the hour I get  
the beeping alarm test for about one minute.  I never noticed it  
previously because these machines lived in the basement den.  Now that  
I am on one level and the rack is in my living room, it's pretty
