seems that APC owners are either dominant to the Debian users list or
just the kind of fanatic to answer an email about their UPS.
I have a Belkin (lame) and a TrippLite (not so lame) that are both
"dumb" and I might keep for the VCR/Tivo/TV stuff.
But it seems that APC is the clear favorite?

smarter units rather then getting new batteries. And I know
Debian is a slightly different OS in that it doesn't really "do"
the vendor binaries. Is there something that is well supported
and easily installed under Debian that I can use. Years ago I
purchased a Belkin UPS and found out later one that the binaries
don't work with all the UPS and linux combinations -- any one want
to guess what side of that line I fell on?

It also is a need of a new battery. And getting that in Oaxaca,
Mexico is quite another story.
