We were hit by a lightening storm Sunday that passed uneventful until the end of the storm.... The sky was brightening up and the lightening was long past when all of the sudden *BAM*. Mother nature decided to hit me with one last blast that was close enough that it sounded like a pop and didn't have a gap between the flash and sound. So far I've discovered that my XBOX and computer are both fried. The XBOX flashes red and green (indicating a BIOS fault or something) while my PC doesn't even POST. I bought a new XBOX and can't connect to Live with it for some reason. My Linksys works fine for wireless connections but I think the wired part is fried. I'm hoping that is all the damage but I'm sure there's more to be found. I'd say the worst part is losing all my game saves. I've had the XBOX since launch and had a lot of time spent on KOTOR, Morrowind, and Soul Caliber II. I *might* be able to swap out the drives but it would be tricky to return the old one then. The moral of the story? Keep everything unpluged until you're SURE the entire storm is past!
