Here we go again.
When three out of four support calls go along the lines of “my modem suffered a lightning stroke and died”, it’s time to start unplugging equipment before lightning strikes.
- If you see a thunderstorm coming, unplug!
- If you’re leaving home for a few hours, no matter what the weather, unplug!
Those seconds spent unplugging and plugging may save you hours and days without internet and computer later on, not to mention unnecessary grief and expenses.
This has been a public service announcement.
