So my roommate floatingatoll spent a couple of hours yesterday trying to get an UPS working, it refused to charge and just went directly to battery.

After much faffing about, APC tells him to plug the UPS into a Windows box which has better diagnostics than the Mac client, and the UPS tells him that our voltage is 183V. Second UPS tells the same.

Quick call to PGE and they consider this an emergency and will send someone out at once.

This probably explains why X10 so did not work, thank good all the computer gear is rated 120-240.

Re: Couple of weeks, actually.

So we have faulty APC units reporting 183 volts?

Does the APC unit work in the office?

Doesn't work anywhere.

It reports 183 volts with software 1.5 or 2.0. They're replacing the entire unit with a different model altogether, in the hopes that it will solve this problem.
