Reminder time once again for those using desktop computers. You should get yourself a Unlimited Power Supply (UPS for short). It is actually Limited Power Supply. 🙂
Those using laptops are sort of protected for a power loss, since they run on internal batteries.
I bet most don't know or think of the worst time they can loss power? Windows up date times. Windows even gives you the information on the screen, do not turn your computer off.
Today I spent over half an hour waiting for the download and installation of files. And the computer required 2 reboots for the updates to take effect. You never know when a power interruption can take place. A UPS protects against surges and low voltage dips.
As for the type of UPS to get, you'll want one with software that can communicate with your computer via cable, and one with a run time of over half an hour, Mindblower!
