Protecting against power issues in a small office takes more than picking a UPS

Protect computers from power problems and you can extend their working life as well as avoiding downtime and possible data corruption.

Losing a mail server or a major database can lead to serious data corruption that will take you time, perhaps even days, to resolve. During that time, your customer’s business is being impacted, and even if they’ve ignored your advice they’re likely to blame you, so you need to explain the danger and convince them to protect their systems.

I would have given it back if asked. But, as is so often the case with fluff, nobody asked.

Fluff

Dirtection Inc: episode 6

In which the vicar delivers a sermon and the rogue cleaning operative delivers the coup de grace.
The keyboard cleaning profession seldom takes one into ecclesiastical circles, so I’m not sure if it is considered normal for vicars to sit stark naked upon gargoyles while delivering sermons through a megaphone.
