ups power.

OK, we're on UPS power.
Emergency lighting turned on.
Reducing other power load on the UPS. Should be able to get a few hours out of it at the minimum. yAy for LCD.

UPDATE So, about 20 mins after this, I had to shutdown the server.
I wonder how long that thing sat in storage. You'd think that one server with a 250 watt (400 peak) power supply would last more than 30 mins when I turn off everything else. I'll have to see what the current draw is on the fan I had hooked up to it too.

The silence was surreal... in a good way.

Good to hear there was power enough to make LJ posts *LOL*

This actually reminds me of back in the good, old days at the dorm. Someone who knew someone had fixed us up with a TooManyWatts UPS for free. We did a little calculation and figured out that we'd be able to keep running for some four hours... with all of our three servers, two desktop machines... and the fridge for our colas, hehe... those were the days...

Yah, this is a 3000 VA UPS and I had one server with a 250w (400 peak) powersupply and 6 scsi drives, plus a digital clock and a fan. I've had it a year, but maybe it'd been on the shelf for a few hundred. *sigh* VERY disappointed.
