I have this great little linux box- it's this *y little Celeron system
based on the i810 chipset. Runs linux GREAT. Today, I went to hook it up
to my UPS, and realized that it didn't have any serial ports. Great, huh?
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had, or knows how to, wire up a UPS to a
parallel port. It shouldn't be that hard- the port on the UPS just has a
few optoisolators in there that don't care too much about voltage. I just
don't have time to sit here with a logic probe and figure it all out, and
was hoping that someone had already done it for me.... :)
I've also heard some talk about UPS monitoring via a game port- anyone
heard anymore on that?
