Blackout Time

'Tis the season - of power failures due to local storms. Like many other businesses, we have UPS's on our critical systems. But unless you spend big bucks, they last only 20 or 30 minutes to keep a PC alive while you shut down files, not keep running a business. While having your own generator is ideal, our solution is much cheaper - replace the UPS batteries with car batteries - which keeps our phones systems and critical PCs and printers up and running. A friend recently showed me this video that shows you exactly how to do it!
