Dec 98


After three days of temperature nudging 40 degrees, it started pissing down a couple days ago. It even started hailing, and of course, we had a momentary blackout… while my computer was on. No thunder/lightning, otherwise I would have shutdown straight away. Paranoia maybe, but I’ve heard of consoles being blown up by lightning-induced electrical surges, and people leaving modems on during thunderstorms, only to return to a smoking box.
