Lightning hit my house today, must have spiked my cablemodem. I live in a 2-family, and Atrace is on the other side. It cooked the ethernet port in his PC as well. Both were off at the time, too, and nothing else seems to have been effected. :scratch: Bad luck, I guess.

Chris, do you use a surge protector with your computer? I do, back when i was using wired internet the surge protecter I had actually had an Ethernet thru port for exactly the situations you describe. :/

Bummer though.

No. I've worked in the IT/engineering field for over 15 years and I don't use a surge protector. I plug my shit into a custom made outlet that I have dangling from my shower head. Also, I'm secretly awesome at setting up trems.

Yes, I do. :lol: My UPS has one of those as well, and everything's plugged into it. Odd, fo'sho.

Fuck the Xbox off and just play the shit out of your PS3 :lol: I have 7 broken Xbox's sat in my room at home, which has just encouraged me to go and buy a PS3.


P.S. I accepted your friend request, and for the amount of time I had a PS3 (which was about 2 weeks) you weren't even online :(

Hahahhahhaha. I know two people that could actually pull this off. But that's strange how lightning strike only killed 2 ethernet ports?? Anything else get zapped or just that??
