Hermione not amused

Well at least I know now.

The power just went out, for a split second. Computer lost power; no damage, no BSOD, but it's not supposed to lose power when plugged into the UPS. I guess the uninterruptible power supply (UPS) that I got second hand at Goodwill doesn't actually work. Great. Now I have to go to ENU and get a new one. No idea what to do with the old one. But I'm sure kengr will tell me.

Luckily, I wasn't in the middle of anything important at the time.

EDIT: Damn computer doesn't know the word uninterruptible, and I didn't see that it had changed the word to "uninterpretable" until someone pointed it out. Then the cursor went haywire, selecting every damn thing. Had to unplug and replug the mouse. (When I use the graphics tablet, it sometimes causes strange malfunctions, and I had just finished another picture, this time of Molly and Dakota Bear.)
