Disable APC UPS Beeper

I was about to go to bed, and my UPS started beeping once per second to tell me to get a new battery.

I began searching for how to disable the beeping so I could get some sleep - starting with searching the UPS for an STFU button. <p>I already had NUT (Network UPS Tools) installed, so the command was actually very easy once I knew what I was looking for.</p><p><strong>/etc/nut/ups.conf</strong>:</p>
