The word "lightening" means a lot more to me after the bolt that took out most of the gear in my house. Phones, power supplies, ethernet ports. Lots of little things don't work anymore -- like 5 out of 7 of the room light dimmers.
I'm putting it all back on-line. And I'm happy I keep backups of all my hosts. If you have not saved your Best Bits recently you should burn a CD right now.
Thanks to petef for the power supply I'm using (right now)!
