Stream Cancelled

Thunderstorms & flickering power mean I'm not going to risk my rig.

1 I live on an island, and the power blinks during thunderstorms.  Usually it's just once or twice, but it's long enough to restart electronics and reset the clock on the stove, etc.  A couple years ago, we got a couple dozen in a row, and my computer was rebooting when another one came, and it trashed my Windows user profile.  I got a UPS/surge suppressor after that and put the computer and one monitor on it so that (1) I can ride out a momentary outage and (2) if the outage isn't momentary, I have time to gracefully shut the computer down.
