    I have to say yes to the turn off unless you have a surger protector or what ever they are called. Lightening can zapp you puter. I would also unplug it from both phone line and power as if the phone pole or the electric pole gets hits current travels.

    Well.. My computer is on a system recovery strip.. So if the power goes off.. My computer still runs for 6 minutes till i can shut down.. If i dont notice in time.. It is capable of shutting itself down via usb port.. but i never bother with that.. Anyways to my point.. If you have a nice computer protector you should be fine..

    Well...it was raining really bad. Most of the power went out downtown and it flooded a lot. I like rain, though. Even if my house does wash away..... hehe

    Awww...that's so sad. I would hate to not be able to save my baby. I would rather die than outlive him. :(

    one stupid question of my own: why were you out there driving in it?

    and should you turn off the machine? hell yes if you don't want it to get fried, unless you've got one hell of a high isolation uninteruptable power supply or are completely off grid with good lightning rods well away from your power systems.

    unless of course if you've got spares on standby and can alway afford to just go buy another one. even then i think not much of that kind of wastefullness.

    if i could afford that, i'd build a storm and everything else proof installation so i wouldn't have to worry about it, instead.
