Today, my telephone line was hit by lightning. I discovered that not only will lightning fry a router, it will also destroy any PCs connected to that router via network cables. I also discovered that a $10 phone line surge protector would have saved nearly $3,000 worth of PC equipment. FML

  • You lucky you. Surge protector worth 10 bucks would probably set your house on fire.

  • HAH. YDI for not getting one though. This one was actually good.

    Also, I like the OPs name.
