I can actually see a market for this! A lot of web sites get rebooted daily
just for the hell of it. These gizmos are probably more reliable that a
scheduled task to shut down windows in software, since they can reset the
system if (when) Windoze hangs while shutting down.

It's still funny. UNIX systems have UPS's so they won't reboot, Windoze
needs them so they will reboot!
