I bought a 1500kva belkin several years ago, and have had to replace the
battery last summer, but that puppy has made me immune to those
concerns, even doing gracefull shutdowns when the battery is about
exhausted. Get all the run minutes you can afford. Its great peace of
mind. Also, single point the power into the room, tieing all the
phone, cable and ethernet lines to that point with surge protectors and
you'll never lose another modem when mother nature gets upset cause
somebody called that stuff butter. The whole room may bounce 20k volts
during a strike, but its the whole room & no individual piece of gear
sees enough difference to hurt anything.
People having trouble with vz bouncing email to me should add the word
'online' between the 'verizon', and the dot which bypasses vz's
stupid bounce rules. I do use spamassassin too. :-)
