Just blew up my router.

Well, one port anyway, which is kind of weird.

I guess I'm the only one that disconnects everything during any storm, surge protectors offer very little protection in my book.

I am usually unplugged when I see the skies darken.

It hit a neighbor's tree and messed up several items in my house last month. Garage door opener, garage circuits, modem, printer, and telephones. All cost about my deductable for insurance. Doh!

+ A Zillion.
We are the lightning strike captiol of the nation.
Time Warner has to be THE worst cable company on the face of the earth. I'm glad I got DSL and Direct TV Sat.

Well, the next storm came through and knocked out the cable.

So I'm on the phone telling the lady at the cable co that the service is out and she askes me if I want digital phone service.

Yes, sure. I'd like a phone that doesn't work every time it rains, it will go right along with the TV and internet .

I guess that way you can't call them and bitch about their shitty uptime on their service.
