AFTERSHOCKS
Lest you think that I was overly-cautious when turning off my computer during yesterday's lightning storm, Kalyn Slebodnik's lingering aftereffects from getting shocked through a telephone receiver 13 years ago should tell you where I'm coming from.

(And no, I'm fairly sure my Xbox problem doesn't stem from last night's inclement weather; the malfunction happened well after the storm had passed, during which time I managed to get those last few minutes of gameplay out of the unit.)

The experts will tell you: During a storm, don't take a shower, don't stand too near a window, and get off the (corded) phone.
