Hi Jim. Sorry to hear that your machines aren't working.

I'm certain we didn't removed your machine from the rack while moving 
everything else in last week. And I can't think of any reason why there 
would be physical damage to your machines. Either way I'm sorry if any 
of my actions would have cause issues with your hardware.

As far as plugging it into the UPS goes, that might have been me or 
Jason Spence just trying to connect whatever was there into the UPS 
because from some crazy reason redundancy for those machines made sense 
at the time. If the UPS puked bad power I'm pretty sure more hardware 
then just yours would have croaked.

Anyhow, I would like to come in and help you debug your machines. I have 
to wait at home tomorrow (Monday) for USPS to pick up a package, after 
that I'll head down to Noisebridge. I could give you a ring when that 
happens, or just swing by Tuesday sometime after 12:00. Please let me know.
