Hi Friends,
This my first post in this forum. I registered as a member a few months ago, but for some reason have been unable to post earlier. Now that the problem has been sorted out, I hope to participate actively. I have been following this thread with great interest and learned quite bit too from it. Most probably I am the oldest among you, have been using computers for the last twenty years, but am not a programmer, although I believe I know a bit about hardware. My main interests in computers are audio, video and image processing, but I am not a hardcore gamer. I am a chemist by education and am in the academia. I am looking forward to exchanging information and ideas with you all. Thanks!

thats a very nice intro sir...welcome to the forum...welcome to Thinkdigit
Thanks! It feels good to be a part of this community.
[FONT=&quot]I have to ask for some help and advice right away. I have an APC Back-UPS RS-1000 which is a little more than four years old and still doing fine, except that its battery seems to be on its last legs. On asking around (Supreme Computers, etc), I was told that the battery is made and marketed by Exide. However, the Exide outlet on [/FONT][FONT=&quot]GC Ave[/FONT][FONT=&quot] told me that they have stopped making the battery for this particular model. Can anyone please suggest a good alternative and how to get it? I shall be really grateful.[/FONT]

Thanks for the response. However, I have (as they say) "already been there, done that", but it wasn't of any use. The Kolkata dealer contact that I got from the APC web site told me that they do not sell replacement batteries and, like Supreme computers, directed me to Exide. Of course, I could pay a visit to the Kolkata office of the APC, but I doubt that they would say anything different. You could call me lazy, because I could at least make a phone call! May be I'll do that unless I get any concrete advice from you friends before that.

Why not u try some googling & find the contact details of APC - they have a call center for service support
Try this link -

PS: My last visit to the APC web site has been a while ago. Just now I revisited the APC web site using the link so kindly provided by you. I found some more (new) options now and there is one specifically relating to battery replacement. Using that option I have now sent my query quoting the model number etc. I am supposed to get a response within one day. Let's see. Thanks again for the link.

Good News! Finally, I got the replacement batteries (yes, I needed two!) for my APC Back-UPS RS 1000. APC was truly prompt, and within two days I got a call from their service centre in Kolkata. I was given the directions to one "Rainbow Systems" behind Deshapriyo Park. I had some logistic problems since I live in the North suburb, needed at least 3-4 hrs for the pupose but was rather busy at the time. That delayed the final act a bit, but the good news is now I have got it! Although the UPS is beeping rather rapidly (something that it never did before), I am getting the full back-up time as before. Once again, I want to thank ITTechPerson for giving me the appropriate link that got me moving and finally solve the problem. Thanks!

Hello Friends,

Hope you are doing well. Well I am writing this post in a little depression. So please don't take this post seriously. As you might know, I am doing a job in stock trading industry. I am quite happy with my job but never loved my job. I always loved the Linux/Unix (Solaris) world and always tried to improve my knowledge in this field and educate myself to meet the growing industry demand. Due to various responsibilities, I never took any risk to leave my current permanent job for something which I always wanted to do. But now I think, the time is running out because of my age (30+) and I need to think fast if I want to get a job I always wanted. So friends, I need a little suggestion from your side to decide what will be right for me. Should I continue my current job (but there is no space to grow here) or try to find a job in Linux/Unix field? What are the chances to get a new job now? What should I do to increase my chances? Please feel free to comment. I can provide any info you need.

Regards,

SB.
