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:
gene at coyote:~$ upsc myups
Init SSL without certificate database <<- whats this mean?
device.mfr: American Power Conversion
driver.version.data: APC HID 0.96
ups.firmware: UPS 03.5 / ID=1015
ups.mfr: American Power Conversion
ups.status: OL CHRG
gene at coyote:~$
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
