I've not much of a c / c++ programmer, but I did hack with the source 
(your .c file didn't come through, did what you said) to get my avr1200 
working (kinda).

however, it doesn't seem to know how to shut off right.  I pulled the 
plug and it turned off after about ~5 minutes, and it wouldn't power on 
after I plugged the ups back in.  it would only turn back on after I 
cycled the power switch..

any clues, or is my UPS driver still too dumb to know what to do??  I 
need to borrow my friend's laptop to grab the XP datastream to figure 
stuff out.
