Busy little nerds…

Since the storms a few weeks ago we have had a very busy workshop! We like being busy, it keeps us out of trouble, but we do feel for our customers who do the right thing and unplug the power to their computers and laptops during a storm. Most of the computers that were damaged recently were damaged through the phone line from the modem. Most desktop computers still plug into a modem with an ethernet cable. These computers lost the network adapter and even the motherboard because of the Adsl modem.

Next storm, remember to unplug the phone line from the wall as well as the power to your electrical devices!
