Apparently, while we were away for the weekend a storm struck here in the undisclosed environs of Western Prince William County, Virginia and unleashed some lightening that struck a little to close to home.
It looks like we lost an ethernet card on one computer, a power supply on another, and a GFCI circuit in the kitchen. So, that’s why I’ve been offline most of the day (if anyone noticed, that is).
We’re back up to normal now — except for some weird problems with the wireless router than I’ll deal with tomorrow — and regular blogging will resume tomorrow. Don’t expect anything tonight, because of the season-ending double-feature Jack Bauer Power Hour.
In the meantime, if anyone can give me a clue as to why my Linksys WRT54GL Wireless Router isn’t recognizing an incoming Internet connection, I’d appreciate it. I don’t think the thing is fried because the wireless network can be seen.
