Surge protectors for your computer

We had a short power cut this morning. It only lasted for a few minutes. But it did remind me what I wanted to say today.

If you are reading this from Spain – or anywhere that has power cuts as a matter of course – make sure you have a surge protector for your computer, and anything that is linked to it.

You can buy individual ones from any electrical shop for about 7€ each. I have four – for computer, printer, router, and telephone. Total cost, less than 30€. You can also buy a posh job for 60 something euros that apparently protects the whole circuit in the house.

So, if you haven’t got one for your computer, turn it off, now. RIGHT NOW. And go and buy at least one. If the shops aren’t open, go as soon as they open. Seriously.
