I never knew this was possible, so there’s a good chance you didn’t either.

The other night, it was raining, but not too hard. I was sitting in my living room, watching the ol’ boob-tube, when there was a power surge. I knew it was a surge (and not a quick blackout) because the light that was illuminating the room got a lot brighter instead of going out.

So, since it was a surge, my surge protector on the TV did its job, and ended up turning off everything connected to it. It also required a reset, which I thought was kind of weird.

The weirdest thing, though, that happened from the power surge, was the reset of my Linksys WRT54GS router.

It didn’t blow it. It just reset it.

Therefore, with a quick reconfiguration, it was good and usable again.

Interesting, eh?
