    Router Battery Backup

    I bought the UltraLAN Micro UPS (DC & PoE) - 60W 17.6AH from Uniterm in July when LS first hit. Great unit. I power my ONT, Routerboard and 8 port HP switch (fortunately 12v) for 6.5 hours before the alarm sounds to power it off. No way to silence the alarm though...

    I would love to see the source of the statistic "Only a third of PCs being shipped to Africa include genuine software, which is a reason for the increase in data breaches and malware attacks in the region."

    Fluctuating radiator temperature

    Apologies only saw this now. I did replace the water pump. It still seemed to overheat occasionally. I eventually bypassed the fan relay and let the fan run all the time for a few weeks. Replaced with a better relay from Motolek. The fan eventually failed in about October last year and had to...
