We got hit with a bump on Thursday while at work. Everyone but me lost work. My laptop held, while everyone else dumped. I lost my workstation, but had no work on it.

We've scavenged a bunch of UPS'* for the next time. I've now got my workstation, laptop, printer/scanner/fax/copier and both USB hubs and both monitors running off a UPS. Both computers will do a controlled shutdown on their own if I'm not there.
