Sorry, I would have allowed the dead horse to rot in peace, but this one just came to my attention in context (and I don't have a subscription to OED Online).

Is "uninterruptible" (as in UPS) in your non-technical, general-use dictionary?

That is, according to previous threads, is it a legitimate word?

Or would some of you, when suggesting that the customer connect the equipment to an uninterruptible power supply, feel obliged to provide a definition or glossary entry for "uninterruptible"?

Yes, I'm yankin' some people's chains, but it's a real query.
