Every day at around 11am (plus or minus 20 minutes or so), my "best" UPS beeps.
I don't see anything happen to the lights, and none of the other UPS's do
anything, but I always hear a beep at about 11am.

The chap who is the supervisor for the local Sask Power division was waiting in
my lobby for his kids one night, and I asked him if anything happens on the
Sask Power lines at 11am.  He said that they have an automatic load sensing
device that switches a transformer from one mode to another and the load always
reaches the point that it's set for at around 11am.

So that mystery was solved.
