  1. What's the shortest time to book a flight?
  2. You are probably talking about Mr. A's?
  3. @Davaoeno, when you quote a source that uses monetization links, please remove them prior to posting the reply here.
  4. By ground floor, I actually meant a single floor dwelling. I do not feel comfortable above the second floor, really.
  5. I prefer a ground floor. Then, you don't need one of those!
  6. I prefer Vegemite over Marmite. It seemed, to me anyway, Vegemite was more common in Australia, while I found Marmite easier to come by in New Zealand. I like 'em both, okay, though. You do realize, @miles-high, there are alternative uses for these products, right? Shine up Chrome / Aluminum wheels on your car. When changing your oil, mix some with mineral spirits and flush your engine. Wax your car's paint job with it.
  7. I have dealt with this as well. Disassemble the UPS case and get to the little beeper speaker. Take a tube of super glue and fill it up. Let it cure. Reassemble. Test. It won't make the beeping go away. But, it will muffle the sound quite a bit. Alternatively, you can remove the unit from the pc board with a soldering iron.
  8. I miss my mama's meat loaf.
  9. It's just that most UPS batteries don't last nearly that long. Of course the number of cycles a battery makes has a lot to do with that, as well.
  10. I have stated the same thing, many times. Andy actually did well after his stroke, much better than I expected he would.
  11. Not sure if they still have it available. But, APC initially came out with "PowerChute" software. When it first came out, it was as buggy as a bar-b-que sandwich left on a picnic table. You could cause it to generate a run time test, which would basically test an APC "Smart UPS", to "learn" how long the UPS would run on battery power, prior to needing to shut down. It had other features, like sending a code to a digital pager (at the time), which would let you know when your computer was on backup power, and when it had recovered. It would also let you know when it was shutting down. Even with all the bugs in the early versions of the software, I knew it had potential.
  12. Starting to drift a bit here, folks. Let's drift back on topic.
