I give up, just kill me now!
« on: January 26, 2012, 01:38:05 PM »
For those not familiar with the far north, our winters are usually fairly hard and always cold.

I think I talked enough about some of the computer problems I'd had lately, as well as a lot of downtime on the internet connection.  Well, Monday afternoon/evening we had a freak lightning storm here (extremely unusual for this time of year, never seen it before).  My wireless antenna took a hit.  Blew that, and some other equipment inside.  I have everything protected to an almost crazy point, so no idea how it happened.  I have things connected to UPS's that themselves are running through additional surge protectors.

Fourth day down, and finally got the net back up a couple hours ago.  Now I can order replacement equipment for everything else.  Anyway, that's where I've been lately.

To whom it may concern ---

Whatever universal dark force I've unintentionally upset, you've made your point.  Quit stretching this out and just shoot me now!  >:(
A computer once beat me at chess, but as it turns out it was no match for me at kickboxing... ;)

Sorry to hear that Joom. Thanks for the update. Hope you get back soon. We've had Adam in VC now for a couple of days.

We had electricity and appliances, it was just computer/internet equipment that got zapped.  Just.

Still, we found was to pass the time...  ;) 8)

Major disturbance.  More like a rift.  And, I just found out my father is DV and I lost an arm... :o

Internet antenna and a few pieces of computer hardware, PJ.  Nothing that time and money (and some work) won't fix.

But hey, I can race again...  ;D
