I was over by the filing cabinets today, filing away some returned mail, when I heard an oddly familiar sound: a triple beep. I couldn?t think of where I?d heard it before, or what it was, until I saw one of the IT guys walk behind me. He was carrying a black UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply), almost identical to the one we used in the RCC server room back in the day (except ours was beige. Beige was all the rage back in 1997).
Funny how a simple thing like hearing a UPS beep can make me reminiscent of my college days… back when I was a true computer geek.
