Thare is one more of that one and four expansions.
I paid C$360 including taxes and 15% buyer premium for all six modules and two 42u racks.

Oh yeah, two PDUs as well.

I paid $150 for a set of two battery packs. Each one is made of of two batteries. I don't really have room for a rack.
Each of those can stand on its side and pretend to be a normal ups. Also, the UPS is 5.5 kVa, much bigger than what you have.

You're not serious about UPSes until you have marine batteries involved. :p



The actual UPS:



I'm down to 3 batteries though, those ones don't seem to last long, they tend to die from shorted cell. Going to go with golf cart batteries or even bigger solar rated batteries eventually.

I am so lazy... ordered a google play email gift card from amazon.ca

Don't feel like giving google play store a credit card.

February 10, 2014. I was picking up pizza from the other side of town. It was that good.

It was around 8pm. It was dark outside. Chilly.

I was crossing the Fielder Road bridge when I hit black ice that just formed as the temps dipped below freezing. Yup. I was the first one to hit the black ice. Lucky me.

I started to fishtail as I reached the crest. I know not to overreact on the brakes and steering to make it worse. But I ricocheted off the center dividing concrete ridge, sending me down the embankment on the other side. I hit air for a brief moment. I rode it out, coming to a stop when I t-boned the guardrail of the feeder road below.

Air bags deploy. I walk out without a scratch. Then the engine catches fire. I grab my valuables out of the car. The fire goes out fairly quickly.

I spent the next four hours waiting with police and then the wrecker. I could have died. The next vehicle after me (a full sized Suburban) wrecked and was disabled. We share a tow. It made for a long night. The police closed the bridge after that.

I guess the pizza was worth it? You got very lucky to walk away from that.
