Summer Lightning

I have a major computer failure following a thunder storm here tonight. Presumably some kind of surge reached the computer. This seems particularly hard to take as I had unplugged the CPU as soon as the lightning started to crack. This post is coming from the laptop – the main computer won't start at all and there is a horrible smell of burning components.

Did I have a backup? Well, I had some things backed up – it is never exactly what you want to be backed up though, is it?

I guess that with a lot of work, I will be able to save the data, which is the important thing, though I suspect that the computer itself will never ride again.
