Argh and Dammit

You know, if I were religious, I’d be worried. No sooner had we repaired the damage from the first lightning strike, but we had another one – this time not a mile from the house, but 40 metres away. Loud explosion, bright flash, interesting sight as the struck tree literally exploded, and then the realisation that the PC, the ISDN modem and the ISDN line itself were all fried, as was the TV and very nearly one of the local dogs…

Anyway, back up here on an old PC and spare modem, so I guess I’m back… though I’m seriously thinking of enclosing the entire house in a tin foil faraday cage!
