My dad is soooooooooo affraid that our computers are gonna blow up when there is a thunderstorm outside. I personally think this is a bogus theory.

Do you guys leave your pc's on during thunderstorms? any thoughts?

plonker.

he has some concern, weve had a few fragile routers blow up, and the od pc power supply but nothing that costs more than a UPS!

if hes sh*t scared, ask him what exactly could go wrong and how much he thinks it would cost, if its expensive and you dont have data backup get him to go and buy a UPS. it will keep things on if you have a powercut and removes spikes etc.

its most likely you'd have a powercut, but other than that throw a tub of fish food at him

Back in 2001 we had a thunderstorm and it actually hit our roof! lost a 2grand computer, 4 tv's totalling 4grand , and a couple phones. We bought a surge protector now and we still unplug everything. Man we took a big hit from that thunderstorm. Never thought it would happen, but it did.
