Nothing looks good at the moment.  It may be that I just have to trust the equipment testing and if there's a big blip that's not repeatable, then it didn't happen.  No, I don't like it either.

Yes, you can build your own UPS.  It would be interesting to see what the 
parts cost totals out to.

What did you have in mind for a power line monitor?

I didn't look very hard, but I didn't see anything interesting under $100.  
My manual says the 5370 is 250 VA.  2 of those cuts out some of the low end 
UPS units, but there are still several left under $100.

They will fix the blinking lights glitches.  They won't fix real power 
outages that last for more than a few minutes.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
