What's wrong with that? Trickle-charge the battery and ride the computers from the battery at the same time... That's an uninterrupted power supply. A voltage regulator, converter, and a few filters will give you a clean, constant supply. It will last longer, and it's a lot cheaper in comparison. Actually, this is a project of mine that's been on the back burner for years now. I'd like to add a network interface for remote controls, some health checking, and test modes, but would have to incorporate an embedded processor (serial port and/or USB interfaces are just as possible). Being that I've never messed with such, any suggestions as far as a good processor to start with? It doesn't necessarily have to be a processor that will do the whole kit-n-kaboodle. Right now, I'm just looking for something I can learn the basics with. I know it's not a BSD-related question, but I figured I'd ask anyway. Thanks WizLayer -- Life is better with a BSD.
