I was 19 when I was hired as a tech for a small accounting office. The daily activity was just to take care of any user issues and maintain the server. The first thing i check was the server room. To my surprise the server was plugged to a power strip that was connected to one of the two outlets in the room and emergency backup battery. I spoke with the boss and let him know that he should invest some money on a simple backup solution since it was only one server, He objected to my suggestion. It was the hottest summer of the year and my boss blasted the A/C 24/7 in the office. Our fuse would burnout or run low voltage which would cause blackouts and also brownouts. I do not know how that 5 year old server (the age at that time) survived all those blackouts and brownouts! After two weeks of no power and constantly losing data, my boss finally gave in an purchased a used UPS.
