1) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
Hi all - just wanted to pass along a note I got from Brett. I guess 
after the last list episode (lights out hour etc) both left the list 
for a while, but they are still very much part of this group... -Tom

If he was roasting coffee at the time, those beans would probably give  
him super-powers...

Or perhaps the roasted batch itself has super powers, traveling in a
jet-propelled TV, fighting the forces of crappy coffee.... "I'm SUPER
ROAST!"

Yikes!  I guess we who live in storm country (and frankly, who  
doesn't?) should start considering heavy duty surge protection for any  
of our electronics.

5) From: Jim and Tina Wheeler
When we were building our new home, we specified a surge suppressor for the
entire house.  Most power companies will install them, if not, any good
electrician can do the job.  Ours has been fried once and it died to protect
everything else.
Even so, we have surge suppressors on the stereo systems, home theater
components, computers, etc.
Not that these will protect against lightning, but they help with power
company problems.

I remember last summer my next door neighbors house got hit by lighting
(he has a 2 story and mine is single-whew) but I still got shocked by my
laptop even though it wasn't my house that got hit. Yes my Alienware was
fine, I was just a bit shook up...
