Recommend UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply)

I've been looking for some APC's models which come with software for Linux as well.

If you know of or currently use an UPS with good Linux support (64-bit native would be twice nice), let me know. I had 2nd power cut in a month and ain't going to face 3rd one without UPS.

No problem. Hope that new UPS helps with your power issues.

I doubt that very much but it sure helps to be able to do clean shutdown
