DonaldRe: Anybody tried a Universal Power Supply (UPS)?
Don't know much about uninterruptable power supply internals, but a tip to anyone who uses one - don't run them through a surge protector. Most UPSs don't put out an analog sine wave - its a digital wave which means high voltage rises over short periods of time - a surge protector/power strip plugged into a UPS will trip, interrupting your power and defeating the whole purpose of the UPS. That was a bitch to track down . . .
