Break's Over, Back In The Pool!

Thursday evening, April 6, Collinsville VA experienced a short but powerful electrical storm.

During this storm my surge supressor failed to supress surges. I lost my cable modem and my PC failed to reboot.

Thanks to my Seagate external hard drive, and fairly regular backups, I was able to restore my PC to somthing approaching it's previous state. I did lose quite a bit of data, including the complete loss of a program I had been working on for a couple of months....Que Sera Sera. (Did I really just quote an old Doris Day song? Arrrgh...)

Yesterday I finally found a cable modem in stock at the Martinsville Wal-Mart. My new Motorola Surfboard is my ticket back into the blog ranks.
