sometimes the surge can come through the cable rather than the plug, if your surge protector doesn't have cable ports, but is sounds like it may have.

Awhile ago I posted an areal photo of where I live. I live in the "black hole" of technology, no cable, no dial up, and right now my home phone line does not function and that storm happened Tuesday. :eyebrow:

You're gonna have to launch your own satellite. ;)

A new no wait. Let me start over, a damn new f!@$ing project (thats better :)) has been assigned to me. And God! haven't i been working hard. Still idiots are not happy. And then out of nowhere they decide to outsource me to train the off-shore team. I was hellbent on not going. But they made me go to embassy for visa application interview. And I, being me, forgot to take my invitation letter, that was required. So I was not granted visa. Now the leaders are pissed off. And I am pissed off. I have to show them that I am pissed off for not getting Visa which I never actually intended to have.
Ah! Life!
Thanks to cellar. I am already feeling better :)

Wow - what do you do, wanderer? If you can tell us without being shot ;)

wanderer 07-12-2010 10:10 AM

Hey Classicman, thanks for asking.

What do I do?
There are banks around the states. They try to use the softwares to process their data with speed. Such softwares often explode with a big bang! :)
......I fix them
(and they also say I am something called software engineer:nuts:)

So they want you to go offshore coughindiacough and train your replacements?

wanderer 07-12-2010 01:34 PM

Thankfully, they will not be our replacements. They will be be working on just one module. Rest stays with us...................for now.

wanderer 07-12-2010 01:35 PM

Not really today but Tuesday evening. I had Zlet #2 out in the Honda - teaching her how to drive a manual transmission. So she stalls the engine at a light. No biggie. Except this asshole a couple of cars back starts honking his horn. The Zlet gets the engine going again, but the impatient asshat has pulled up alongside us ON THE RIGHT SIDE SHOULDER and yells "If you don't know how to drive, then get off the fucking road", then takes off.

Some people are a waste of space. I wish I'd been quick enough to get his license number.

People are the sux. That doesn't help a young driver. :(

glatt 07-15-2010 01:00 PM

I'm sorry Pete. That really sucks. I hope Zlet was able to shrug it off.

classicman 07-15-2010 01:07 PM

Did she get to see Dad do this?


xoxoxoBruce 07-15-2010 09:01 PM

Teach her in a parking lot.

Big, snow filled lots are where I practice my drifts and power slides. When I lived on Lake Champlain (back in the day) people would drive on the lake at about 80 and then reef on the E brake and crank the wheel.

Probably vomited in their cars too.
