Yay UPSes!

I never used to connect my monitor to my Uninterruptible Power Supply; it was more important to me to get long battery runtimes than to be able to see what I was doing. When I traded up to a newer APC UPS last year, I decided to hook up the monitor. The power went out for the first time this morning, and I have to say it's incredibly confounding to have the power go out around you and still be sitting in front of a honkin' CRT shining away like nothing's wrong. In fact, I actually sat there for a moment trying to figure out what kind of devilry shut down the A/C, lights, and television while leaving my entire computer running. The UPS alarm finally snapped me out of it and reminded me why this was happening. Nice. Battery-powered monitors are sweet.
