Slightly oversized UPS

by Volker Weber


What's running on it? Snoopy only?

An iBook? That would not make any sense, because every notebook has a UPS built in. :-) The UPS serves most of the devices in my "silent data center":

- ISDN Access Terminal
- DSL Modem
- BenHur2 (Router, Firewall, Mail Server, Spam & Virus Filter ...)
- Linksys NSLU2 File and iTunes Server
- Linksys WRT54G (Wireless Access Point Router)
- 2 Firewire external HDs

None of those devices has a fan and the only thing you may be able to hear are the Samsung Spinpoint drives in the Firewire enclosures. But you have to be very quiet.

Looks like some serious capacity planning to me . . . .
