Uninterruptible Power Supply. They take over when the lights go out. Read all about it>>>>
At the present moment, I am enraged to a point where I am afraid of myself going beserk on my family, and I need some insight on the existance of a piece of computer hardware.
I understand 'tis mostly my fault, yet my ignorance is inevitable, and I need some backup help.
Just minutes ago, I fould myself staring at a black screen, momentarily paralyzed, slowly realizing that my three hours of work has just been purged in a fraction of a second. I get up to find the microwave, the hairdryer, the TV, the Stereo, another laptop, and maybe 500 watts of light on simuntaniously for no valid reason.
Unfortunately, my expensive personal computer does not have the luxury of a backup battery, therefore I suffered complete loss of all open applications and their data.
I'll stop beating around the ******* bush. I've never heard of this, therefore it's probably rare, pricy, or just uncommon - the latter being the prefered. Is there some power box that I can hook up my PC? So that the next time my foolish sibling attempts to watch the red carpet and listen to music from a different room while drying her hair (AND boiling the microwave), I will have enough time to sprint down the strairs and recover the power breaker without another heart attack.
Please let me know if there's such a thing around on the market, and how much it would cost me. I'm praying it's not going to cost me more than $50-$200.
