My actual home office is an approximation of the PerfectOffice. I keep a <a href="http://www.w3.org/2001/02pd/opksnet.n3">formal description</a> more or less up-to-date, which provides a nice <a href="http://www.w3.org/2001/02pd/opksnet.png">diagram</a> (using <a href="http://www.w3.org/2001/02pd/">some RDF diagramming tools</a>; also: <a href="http://www.w3.org/2001/02pd/opksnet.svg">in SVG</a>, <a href="http://www.w3.org/2001/02pd/opksnet.ps">in postscript</a>). DirkMachine is my desktop and PbJam is my laptop. We have a mac in MaJoStudio. We enjoy WirelessNetworkingUpsAndDowns. AmdAntec is the machine I put together for the boys. It replaced a My Favorite PC 400mhz machine that we got for free via ETrade. Mary used it for a while. <a href="http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.asp?Mfr%2BProductline=My+Favorite+PC%2B&amp;mfr=My+Favorite+PC&amp;cat=RAM&amp;model=My+Favorite+PC+400MHz&amp;submit=Go">memory for my favorite pc</a>: SDRAM, PC100. 128MB or 256MB. Machine currently has 96MB (64+32). shoal, my desktop machine used to route between my wireless LAN and my DSL connection. But it was a bit touchy. see @@problem reports to fork/fogo.

It came back on in seconds, which makes me wonder why my UPS didn't make up the difference. So I'm InTheMarket for a replacement. <a href="http://norman.walsh.name/">Norm</a> says the battery on his went dead one time. When did I get mine? Ah... FractalAccounting records show Standby UPS SYS for 1999-07-18 for -109.99 at OfficeMax #291; in particular, it's an <a href="http://www.tripplite.com/products/product.cfm?productID=11">Internet Office 2005</a> from <a href="http://www.tripplite.com/">Tripp Lite</a>. I didn't use the "I'm going down now!" signalling capability of the old UPC, but I'd like to. After reviewing the <a href="http://us1.networkupstools.org/compat/stable.html">NUT compatibility list</a> and some amazon product reviews, the <a href="http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0131506">APC Back-UPS ES</a> for $42.99 at microcenter looks interesting.
