Watch your power


What a disaster! When I got home on Monday evening I found we'd had a power outage which had knocked out the PC (bugger).

Obviously I tried to fix it but no luck, next day at work did a bit of research and that evening again tried to fix it but feared the worst (dead power supply).

The next day ordered a replacement from these folks and that evening took the old power supply out.

The next day (today) new psu arrive and PC appears to work. although this psu is 350wattes versus old one at 250 watts it is worryingly light and cost about £5 plus about the same for delivery- we'll see how long it lasts.

Conclusions
1) Too reliant on a PC.
2) Delivery amazing
3) Get a surge protector
