If you have frequent power outages, surges, etc, a UPS is a must-have,
not only for not losing your work when the computer suddenly switchs
off, but for protecting the computer equipment. Here where I live, those
300$ (or, in my case, 800 euros for a reliable on-line UPS) amortizes in
just one winter.

If your editor has no auto-save&recovery, please consider using Emacs,
which eliminates the distraction and anxiety of having to remember about
pressing Ctrl-s from time to time.
