I am using this http://www.tapr.org/gps_vpib.html board as the templat for the interface circuits.  The circuit calls for a BR2325 battery which I cannot find in the local parts store.  Is there a person on this list with experiences of this board design that can tell me what I can substitute for this part?  Or maybe it is not necessary?  I am not even sure if the battery is necessary but from my experiences the boards go from a cold start whenever power is interrupting. One of my servers is part of the ntp pool so I am needing the rapid recovery if the power is interrupted. My systems are on the UPS so maybe this battery is not required?

Please use your return key!!  The first line of your message runs right 
off my screen!  sixty to one hundred characters per line seems a 
reasonable length to me.  Greater lengths may be difficult for some
people to read!

The battery you are seeking is available at Amazon.com for $3.99 U.S. 
for one battery.  Another seller is offering a package of five for $9.95
