I must have taken a massive power hit over the weekend. The symphony is fine but I have one computer dead, a surround sound system fried and many lightbulbs out.
oi vay

Wondering what tricks I can do to protect the entire building in one swoop.
Don't forget, this is the building that likes to make VGA monitors all wobbly unless ya find juuust the right frequency for em.
thanks for any electrical tips.

Colorado Springs has a fairly inexpensive surge protection insurance through the utility company. We take many summer lightning strikes here, so it's good to get. I believe they also will put a surge protector outside the house. Outside of individual surge protectors, that seems to be the cheapest. I'm sure St. Louis has the same thing for those big thunder boomers you guys get brewing off the mighty Mississippi...

Now you've made me anxious for football season. 'Dadgum' is Fisher DeBerry's favorite saying... Really, it is.

Kind of interesting that you post this. A similar thing happened at work today. Killed 2 FCP workstations.

A while back an electrician doing some rewiring in my house mentioned there's a not-too-insanely-expensive surge-supression device an electrician can install in the main power panel. Sorry I don't remember the details, but maybe this is true & might be worth researching further?

All the best,
