Thanks for the warning Graham. I've decided to stay at home then.

My usual tale at this point:
Switched-as usual-my high powered AMD machine off in the evening.
Slept in a cloud of innocent thoughts.
Woke up to thunder, lightening and a tremendous thunderclap nearby.

Sizzling sound and tuffs of smoke emanating from my machine...!
How the...? I hear you ask. I still dont know (Do I ever want to find out?)

Fried mobo and a fried cable to one of my HDD!!

Would love to turn this door stopper now into Thor's hammer...

moral from this tale: take the gods seriously!

p;3 indeed, my-somewhat long winded-way of saying that this was the end of my first AMD machine.
