Here is the line that looks most relevant to me from dmesg:

hiddev0: USB HID v1.00 Joystick [BELKIN UPS] on usb1:2.0

Looks to me like it's showing up as a USB device.

Right now I have the Belkin Bulldog sentry software pointing to
/dev/ttyUSB0; at that setting it doesn't, at least, return an error
saying, "Cannot connect to device".  It says it's connected, but it
doesn't get any information from the UPS... nothing about voltage,
capacity, nothing.

I tried pointing it to /dev/ttyUSB1 and it wouldn't even connect.  Should
I try pointing it at /dev/ttyUSB2?

It looks like it would be a good product.  Heh.  On the positive side,
once I got the ncurses issue sorted out, upsd seems to be running just
fine.  I just wish I could figure out how to talk to it and get some
information out of it.
