In February 2013, I got a new work laptop. It’s a Lenovo ThinkPad x230.

sorry about this taking so long. As of now blog.pcfe.net uses a CAcert signed certificate.
To have chromium (and chrome) browser do Kerberos TGT for example.com web pages, one needs to pass

While the current Smart-UPS (aka SMT) range of UPS from APC has much fewer variables exposed in a way that is useful for fancy apcupsd usage (you’ll find apcupsd in EPEL), they are still amply sufficient for home use. Basically, the UPS gives an estimated time left at current load and the remaining battery level. At home these are anyway the only two readings I want to trigger scripts on.
