UPS for the happy geek

Oh, I am a happy little geek. My laptop is plugged via USB into the APC UPS, which means very little to someone who can't decipher the alphabet soup, but -- basically, the laptop recognizes the UPS as a back-up battery instead of wall current, so should the power go down, the UPS will tell the laptop that it's running on a battery now -- granted, a big-ass battery, but still a battery -- and the computer will happily go over into power-saving mode and hibernate itself if there's need. Whee!
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
