Hey Ken,

Just curious.  Given that yours is a natural gas company, does your
emergency power generator run on NG?

Sounds like you need to do something with the UPS's.  Have you figured out
what went wrong with them on both events?

Great news on SMAPP!  I wonder how many shops have this implemented? 
Doesn't the system get shipped with it set on?
