wtf is going on?  :confused:

Two weeks ago the power supply on my computer died, had to go get another one.

Last week the USB cable to my camera kept overloading the USB ports on my computer so couldn't get vids off of it, got a new one off ebay yesterday.

Last night the transformer to my hard drive with all my teevee shows on it died, got nothing to watch except actual teevee.

10 minutes ago I switched on the hard drive with all my photos and videos of the Ferrari Rally and Classic Adelaide on it, and it started smoking, now my place is a stenchbox.

 :confused: :confused: :confused:

i think you'll find that's got nothing to do with your smoking equipment.

I love my car. Buy your own

I think the gremlins are trying to tell you something.

Maybe the mice down in SA started peddling too fast and pushed too much current your way...   :scratchchin:

Wait, spend $200 bucks to protect the 6 x 300gb hard drives of exotic car photography and videos...  :faint:

Meh, I rent my life. 

The worst thing I could lose is the stuff on those hard drives, but I'm now taking further measures to back up my original data in off-site locations.

APC makes good stuff...not too pricey. Nice thing is they quit working after a big enough spike...the cheapos just pop a fuse and still provide juice...kinda obviating the purpose.

I just went to make some English muffins - popped them down in the toaster and *BOOF* - off goes half my power.

Went to the breaker box and flipped the switch, plugged the toaster back in and everything was fine.

Muffins were yummy. :)
