Time to casually mention to the wife something about your next generator project - you know, the backup to the backup!  ;D  ;D  ;D

But of course!  Our major telecomm company in Alaska uses lots of mountain top repeaters with multiple modern generators of various sorts... each of them also has an old air-cooled Lister HR as the final fail-safe device to be able to guarantee no significant down-time.

When the chips are down, they know they can count on the old Listers to always perform.

There are backups, then there are fail-safes.  ;)
