We never put a UPS on the systems. We only put batteries on them - 4x 12v 7AH batteries are WAY CHEAP. We've found they can run a system 18 hours depending on call loads (and POE - this was with no POE IP sets). Batteries are what, 12$ each? if that. Anyway, less than 100$, and a cheap UPS runs about the same but gives you maybe an hour of run time. Good surge supressor and batteries beats a UPS...

Sometimes there ARE ghosts in the machine. I use MSN Live, ask me for the addy if you want.

Never, ever, argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience
