a look of abject horror, yikes

This is why I have surge protectors

Sound effects of the evening: *thud* BEEEEEP gzzzzz

For those who don't know what goes gzzzzz, it's an external hard drive spinning down when something outside going thud throws over both the circuit breakers on my UPS and surge protector. My alarm clock is my canary: it's plugged straight into the wall, so it'll fry if I need a new surge protector. It's okay, so I'm not hunting for replacements yet.

Of course, this is also why I hit Ctrl-S after every paragraph when writing papers.
