    • Thanks to battery backups and hot swappable SSDs I didn’t lose anything but shut down just in case. Power came back on so I brought everything back on line and then same thing. Double hassle. Everything is off til later. My confidence is shot. Batteries need power to charge, they don’t last more than like 30-45 minutes with a bunch of stuff plugged in. Plus the beeping is annoying. Shut it all down. Called it a day. Still have my phone for comms, but I’m gonna relax with the Scoop on the phone for awhile, catch up on the news for a while and grab a Sefer. Good night.
