anyone else lose some equipment??

lightening struck the tree in my neighbours yard, half my complex lost phones and ruined TVs. my phone works and thankfully my tv and PVR are ok!! but it blew up my adsl modem, router and network printer. i dont dare turn my mac on, and since buying a new router/modem my other AP isnt working, so no xb live and no tv/movie streaming to my tv :(

friggen storms! you think that id have the phone line protected. but no i have 3 UPSs around the house but i didnt do that lol

i bought the new modem/router for $280 yesterday, i was gonna upgrade to N wireless, but it was $100 more hahha and the mrs would have cracked me one to the head :P

and now i got an old AP that will work in client mode so i can get my xboxes/ps2 back up and online again. and then i can watch my downloaded movies and tv shows on my tv instead of my laptop, which has a 17" screen anyway so its not all bad :P

Damn... o well.

As someone said before it is because you own a mac. Chuck the mac and the earth will love you for it.

Alternatively you could get Leapord and jump into the fray with the rest of the fanatics trying to bombard Apple tech support with complaints to appease the devil :evil:
