[muglo] Re: a good meeting

Good idea, Karl. I've had two lightning strikes. The first time, a surge 
protector saved everything, but died in the effort. The second time, I had a 
replacement surge protector that would have saved everything except that I 
stupidly had the Rogers cable coming straight into the computer, unbuffered; 
the strike came in on the cable, bypassing the surge protector, and fried the 
computer, printer, scanner and external drive.
Nowadays, with the laptop, I just unplug when there's rumbling overhead, and 
run on the battery. If I need the Internet, Airport lets me have it and still 
stay isolated from anything that's liable to carry a surge.
