Today the mother of all power surges tripped an APC Enterprise UPS cabinet (x2), and my favorite little Debian Woody machine, with uptime of 1100+ days, rebooted. The APC was inspected literally just two weeks ago and was given the stamp of approval. Looks like the nearest upstream transformer crapped itself.
No real reason for posting this, other than it's depressing and I thought I'd vent a bit. Note that none of my BSD machines achieve uptimes like that...I upgrade them too often since they run more critical services.
