We just had an electrical storm awhile back. Luckily, it was just for a short while. A colleague suffered two tvs being zapped - both struck by lightning during an electrical storm. Both tvs were hit at the same location in the sitting room. I heard that if lightning has stricken once at a certain spot, chances are it might strike that same spot again. So, it is best to relocate the equipment. Not sure how far this is true though.
Anyway, I received an interesting email the other day. It contains three pictures with a caption that reads:
THIS IS INDIA. IT'S WHERE YOU CALL WHEN YOU HAVE A TECHNICAL PROBLEM WITH YOUR COMPUTER.
Right! This is India where many Multi-National Companies have their call centers located. Awesome network! I wonder if they have ever been hit by lightning.
