I'm so lame!  No UPS, yet.  Maybe after I've recovered from paying for
the car.  (I'm still a fan of Best Power's UPSes.)

Well, of course I do that.  But I'm concerned about fsck times for
machines that have large filesystems.  The machine I'm soon going to
rebuild has 41 GB of... um, productivity files, in an 82 GB RAID array.  
e2fsck takes about six hours, after a power loss.  (Unfortunately, no 
UPS for that box, either.)
