Poof

Lightning 1, Computer 0

Last thursday evening we had a lightning strike somewhere close. A surge came through the phone line, which was plugged into a pci modem, which smoked the motherboard, jumped across to the ethernet card and smoked the wireless router. Somehow a usb 4 port adapter was hit. Our television is dead. Our neighbors had various things but I think we got the worst. Great fun.
