Happy Halloween everybody. A friend of mine is an amazing artist and every year blows me away with her pumpkin sculptures. Thought you might like this one this year ... a bit off topic but I'm just a festive guy. Don't eat too many sweets

Finally getting some cooler temps outside. Haven't really been able to run all the rigs without the need to  open windows or crank the A/C.
Chilly nights recently caused the windows to get closed so when I get home from work the house is nearly 90 degrees. I'm about ready to let em rip,,, what say all ????

I had to run off my window fans  because it was 58°F inside and my feet cannot handle that cold of weather temperatures.
28.4 °F Outside Now

I like opening the windows when its colder outside, now if only it would stop raining every other day. 
More rain again today so - Back to AC it is; my room with 2 Folding rigs went from 66 to 84 degrees in only a couple of hours

Current plan is for a Nov 27th start date.  I haven't had any time devote it this though - pretty much haven't been home before 10:00 PM everyday this week...

Built up your DFP with sandbags yet, bcav? I added plenty of grenade sumps to mine. Just replaced a UPS that blew up yesterday; lasted 14 years, no less.
 
Pull the pins and let 'em fly! <figuratively speaking> 
 
And, no glitches -- knock on wood!

BCAV: That's the exact UPS that blew up on me (well, the batteries finally let go)! Luckily, no damage.
 
I replaced it with the BR1500MS model -- works like a champ, and better engineered: https://www.amazon.com/APC-Sinewave-Battery-Protector-BR1500MS/dp/B0779LDRWZ/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1542235842&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=apc+br1500ms&psc=1. Pure sine-wave -- no stepped digital wave. At least, that's what the hype says.

That is a New Model that Just Came Out
It took the Place of the APC UPS 1500VA Sinewave UPS Battery Backup & Surge Protector, APC BackUPS Pro UPS (BR1500MS)       
 
New

 
Old Model and I have three as well from this Year and one Died and APC replaced it.

 
Even the Older Older one APC Back-UPS Pro 1500VA UPS Battery Backup & Surge Protector (BR1500G)

I think so. It was plug 'n' play -- just hooked up the negative battery terminal and off to the races. The box is smaller and thinner, but with more outlets. Heavily vented on top and two sides. Plenty of gun ports

They removed the USB Ports I could charge my iPhone from 10% to 100% in 1 Hour 20 Minutes.
Also down from 6 Battery to only 5.
10 Total Outlets: 5 Battery Backup & Surge Protector; 5 Surge Protector Only NEW
 
Why not just replace the Batteries, Amazon has them.

BR1500MS has both traditional USB and "thunderbolt" sockets. Can you change your order?

The negative cable on my old UPS just fell off upon inspection. Wasn't going to take a chance on new batteries (even though they're about $44 on Amazon).

Not worth the extra $30 Bucks and I still have 3 of them in use.
"thunderbolt" You mean USB C?
