As I said in my earlier post I had a cheap UPS and an APC, the cheap one
burn up P-U ! But the APC was fine. The reason I mentioned your grid is
my brother-in-law is an electrician back in Philly and once told me
homes are nothing, do you know how much juice it takes to push a train?
On a OT I'm in Seattle and the baseball stadium roof retracts, yes it
dose rain here all the time. But they check the weather report first,
because of the thousands of dollars it costs to pull the roof back and
forth. BTW we all voted NO to the 1/2 bil. to build it, but somehow it
got built. I said I'd never go in that place, but try to tell a 7 YO
boy you can't see a baseball game because Daddy is making a political
statement, I went. Nice place, but it should be for what we paid!
Shameless plug for my
brother-in-laws Irish band
