well its just common sense . . .

anything electronic that is of great value, you put a surge protector on it . . .

except in southern california, we want a surge intensifier, what with all the blackouts . . .

in fact, theres a blackout in my city right now . . .

its just that im on a laptop and using my backup dialup account which my cable service kicked in!
