I've drug it as far under the table as I can get it on a 30% heart.  
Yeah, I'm getting on, I'll be 85 in about 2 weeks. Heart surgury will be 
scheduled in the next few days to replace a worn out, leaky aortic 
valve.  Piece if cake if my veins are big enough.

So what driver do I use with a Smart-UPS_1500???

Never mind it was found and accessed by the bootup! upsc my usp reports:

Which is a little less verbose than the smaller belkin I took out because 
its 3rd battery set had failed, apparently at least 3 shorted cells.

I can recall the first time I setup nut to watch a ups, a cast iron 
bitch.  An old wet batttery NCR that was bigger than my 30" tower 
computer. Ate battery's for breakfast too. This automatic configuration 
is a breath of fresh air, thank you very much.
Amazing...  Now I need to get something and finsh shoving it under the 
desk, piece of 1x4 about 4 feet long.  Must be all of 70 lbs...  Or I'm 
getting puny in my advanced years. I no longer can claim I am as good as 
I ever was, not even once.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
