Zeus Should Stop Throwing Lightning...

Well that and two tvs and a alarm clock that will not stop playing music, no matter how many times you hit the off button (unplugging it was the only way to shut it up). Granted this is nothing compare to the stuff some of you guys have dealt with. So let hear it, tell me if you ever had lightning overload any of your applications or do worst to your house? And also, can someone find a way for me to punch Zeus in the face for this? :ulty:

Lightning good ;_; Well unless it knocks out the power completely, usually doesn’t happen to me. You might just have shitty powah or you get more powerful storms then i do, no fair.

Most recently, we had about $2000 worth of stuff get killed by lightning, including 2 TV’s, cable modem, router, several cables, phone lines, 3 phones, and an X-Box.

Lightning’s pretty rare where I live. I don’t believe any of my stuff’s been damaged by it. Though I don’t wish to invite bad luck. knocks on wood

But lightning rules!

Lightning is cool but destructive it destroyed my old computer and my grandpas store. his store was over 100 years old

Lightning= f**king annoying. Irony here as we’ve just had a massive storm where I live (2 inches of rain in about half an hour), not much in the way of lightning, though.

Once completely took out a modem of mine, though, which isn’t bad damage considering the storm was raging from something like 10:30pm-4am. And seeing as I’m a light sleeper anyway, by god was I pissed off the following morning.

The first thought that went into my read when I read this statement:

“MY EYES! THE SURGE PROTECTORS DO NOTHING!”

Since Georgia’s been in a drought the last few years, I haven’t had this problem in recent memory. But if you’re really so worried about this, get some rubber stoppers and stick them on the outside of the case. Like, the big industrial kind. I dunno, put them on the bottom or something. That should ground it so that any electrical shock would be neutralized.

I hope. I’m in a real MacGuyver mood,

I’m in a real MacGuyver mood,

In that case you shouldn’t be just grounding a case, you should be building a satellite phone that uses the entire fricking atmosphere as its antenna.

Ha! your problems are trivial! Odin keeps throwing his spears at me, luckly missing, however he punctured the radiator on my car. He caused me like 1000$ worth of damage this week alone.

And don’t get me started on that bastard Jupider
