I have the flu, so I drink soup, only packet soup is crap. So i made my own.
Its a simple recipe I made up using common sense.
2 small potato
half celery stick
sweet corn (left overs)
shallots (left overs)
Stock pot - the new ones :-p
2. Saute onion, garlic and chilli
3. Water (1 kettle (1.5L))
5. Stock pot
Things I would do differently
No chilli, the chilli floats to the top and is dangerous, use paprika instead
More potato, the potato goes MIA but that could be the type of potato
More celery just use the whole stick
Don't get the stock pot, just get oxo cubes or similar like I was supposed to.
Some fresh herbs would not go astray.
It tastes nice, clean, clear and simple no unnecessary sugars, should keep until I recover.
All ingrediants except the celery ($1.50) and stock pots ($3.50) were already in the fridge so basically free.
So now I am onto UPS, which is making more sense as I read into it. Basically everyone needs one.
Calculate how much power you need
External HDD 20
+20% = 1068
These figures are quite rough as I guessed. So for my computer I am going to need something quite powerful. For the HTPC I have worked out it is drawing about 230w, but I'm pretty sure I put a 650w PSU in it. In any case I just need it to last maybe 5 mins while I switch the power back on in the box.
Boredom is not always good, as it can lead to various forms of fire or stop start lego annimations.
