Well, still holding off on a new computer, looking to that in September perhaps after the price drop on AMD chips (shh! secret! coming July 27th) and the last of my debt is cleared. One last student loan of $1500 to go, and with a post-AC bank account recovery happening steadily, that should be done in August.
But, right now, I need a new UPS system, because this one just can't hack power spikes from the air conditioner's powercycling, alet lalone last night's electrical storm. So, I'll ask for advice. I need something capable of handling a 21" CRT, new system when that gets bought, DSL modem.. and other accountrements. I don't need power long, but this monitor is beeeg. 6 outlets minimum, 8 preferred, and able to handle at least 3 plugs with beeg transformers.
