[Nut-upsuser] Tripp Lite Internet Office 350VA

This is a USB only ups.

I could not make it work with nut. So I put this daemon together.

Get it from http://www.vsys.org/sventura/dev/ at the bottom of the page.

Init scripts are gentoo based but I think it should be easy to adjust 
them to any distro.

I am planning to integrate it with nut if I can find the time and there is
enough interest on it to justify the project.

This is a very entry level ups, nothing fancy, it can only tell you 3 
ONLINE, OFFLINE and PANIC. But it easily keeps a complete workstation
running for 5 minutes.

Here in Mexico it is hard to find a APC dealer. Nut supported Belkin 
rs232 models
were available for a time frame and then discontinued if favour of 
unsupported USB
ones. TrippLite installation cd refused to work on my gentoo box even 
when linux
is listed as supported for that model.

You have to play with what you can get and this ups (TL350U) is very 
popular. You
can find it even at departamental stores.

I hope someone can put this code to good use.
