We had a blinking power failure - the power went off, then flashed on, then flashed off again, and like that for a few times.
... and it flash-fried my uninterruptible power supply. Yeah, the one that's more than 5 years old. Yeah, the one that I had to tape a quarter over the power button because my cat Johnny Bento stepped on the button and turned it off a couple times.
Very sad. I buried it in the back yard
trash can and ordered a new one from Amazon.
Good news: Amazon says it will be delivered tomorrow. Bad news: When they say tomorrow, they mean "if we feel like it, and if it isn't too cloudy, and if our corn flakes aren't too soggy, and if my girlfriend doesn't yell at me for eating all the chocolate chip cookies".
I'm having trust issues.
