Back up power for the modem

back up power supply for modem and router

We lost power this morning at 5:30am.

How did we still get the blog out on time?

The above CyberPower CP600 uninterruptible power supply unit has our modem and router plugged into it. When the power went off it switched to its internal battery which can run both items for over an hour.

OMG. You guys play Settlers! Do you ever play Carcassonne? You'd probably get a kick out of Munchkin, too! Sorry, my friends and I are board game nerds. We try to have a weekend board game marathon at least once a year with my, my husband, my best friend, and his best friend. =D

I was also going to comment on the games in the picture. Agricola, Settlers, the Seafarers expansion, something that looks like it is held together with duck tape. This looks a lot like my house.

Emily --- Sorry I forgot to answer your comment --- I was at the dentist Thursday, which wiped everything else out of my mind....

I've played Carcassonne once or twice. My brother has it, but doesn't always bring it when he visits. Your marathon sounds like lots of fun!
