If Java had true garbage collection, most programs would delete themselves upon execution.

I've never had any luck with these, they go bad before you ever even need to use them and then all they do is turn off within a couple seconds of losing power. And then they fucking beep every few seconds until you unplug them -_-

Have you considered switching to your own generator or getting solar?

we have a backup generator that runs on natural gas, and our neighborhood has a covenant ( not sure if I spelled that right) so no solar panels or sticktly generators, the backup generator does not cover my room and it takes a minute to start up

You're kidding, right? Your neighborhood doesn't allow you to install solar panels? What are they going to do about it if you do?

And I don't know a lot about using a generator for home power but does anyone use them all day as their primary power source? i.e. leaving the power grid and using your generator(s) to provide power to your entire house?

the fine for breaking the rule depends on the size of the object a solar panel would probably go around $5000 and we would have to take it down or they will

Your family must have signed a contract with an HOA then because that sounds like HOA bullshit. Anyway if youre looking to buy 20 seconds to shut off your PC before losing data then I guess hit Google up and see if you can find some reviews... maybe I just bought a lemon or something.
