Well it's certainly looks like you are covering all bases, particularly with 
the UPS.
I don't know what part of the globe you are in but here in Australia. (I Guess 
it would be the same
all over)
I have just recently learnt that early surge protectors are useless with Late 
Pentium 3 Machines and
all Pentium 4 Machines.
The reason being is the capacity in the newer protectors is greater than the 
early type.
So if you go down to you local K-Mart (Wal-Mart) and buy something of the shelf 
in most cases it
will be an el-cheapo type of unit.
For the benefit of others that are reading this I strongly suggest you go to 
either a Computer
Specialist or an Electrical Store.

A day or two before the first problem manifested itself, I came home
to find the VCR and other digital clock blinking, and both machines
(always left on, then) turned off. There had been a power failure
during the day. At the time, I didn't think anything of this.
