I learned after a few times to plug sensitive electronic items into heavy duty surge protectors.

I was planning on completing the Windcrest super sprint triathlon this morning....so i was already not sleeping well and then the rain and hail happened and slowly but surely they canceled the race. What a bummer because it was fabulous by 10/11 in the morning today. (But then looking at it in hindsight it was probably a good thing because I pulled my bike out of the car today and it had a flat....I had nothing to fix it in the morning...whoops).

I discovered today that one of my surge protectors was taken out, the HTPC computer appears OK. Still sorting out the devices connected to the UPS.
