As I will have limited resources, 2 computers with 2 usb bus each and
8-10 cheap upses in the same room that distribute power to other room,
wired with ethernet and power cables, I can't have each computer
from the other room connected to each ups obviously but should do for
some usb hubbing and smart distinguishing. I know it's possbile but we
need to find how
