Auto start winamp and stream. (For power outages.)

Is their any plugin that will auto start playing whats currently in Winamp after a computer restarts? Say after a storm and the power shuts off and then back on? TYIA

(And please don't assume I am a "Mac and Cheese" type station. I really have my act together it's just the area is very susceptible to outages from thunderstorms.)

I suggest also investing in a good size (in terms of wattage and runtime) uninterruptible power supply (UPS). One that lets you ride out short blackouts or shutdown your system properly during long blackouts. A good UPS can also provide protection from sags and surges that can occur on your power line and can be programmed to shutdown your system after a set time when you're not there to do it yourself. The UPS should provide backup power for your computer, monitor, connected external drives, routers, and internet connection hardware (iow, the minimum needed to keep you running). Printers and other stuff should not be connected to the UPS.

Sudden loss of power may damage your hardware and/or corrupt software files that were being written to drives when the power when out. Check your event log and run system diagnostics after recovering from a sudden power loss.

The UPS will need time to build back up to full capacity when power returns, so factor that into the size you'll need if you have frequent blackouts.

http://*******.com/lzrpzy4 2.3 minutes seems just fine. This look enough to keep a dell E310 with no monitor running, no keyboard. Just running as a mule server. What would you suggest? There is quite a few at that link.

EDIT: Whoops, can't link anything?

It depends on the amount of power needed and the time needed to build itself back up. So you don't want one that will drop below 50% in 2 to 3 minutes and then need hours to regain full capacity. So a cheap one won't do, that's why I call it an investment.

Talk to the vendor's tech support about your particular needs and don't let them 'sell' you something too small or way too big (but err on the side of big). The real cost (over time) is in replacement batteries. If the batteries are deeply discharged frequently, then they will need replacement sooner.

Well these outages are 10 to 20 seconds at most and happen 5 or so times during the storm, shouldn't that do it?

http://www.amazon.com/Wagan-400-Watt.../dp/B000GPV2QA I have one of these, these don't have a setting for being a UPS do they?
