The former BBS machine has been offline since April, when the hard drive wouldn't boot up. I haven't powered it up since then, and am considering donating it to a local shop for parts, as I don't need it back. Most of the stuff is now on the main BBS computer, which now has Windows 7 32-bit on it...and I'm not going to Windows 10, if ever. Yeah, I know I said I'd never go past XP, but after figuring out how to tweak things, Windows 7is
working better than XP ever did.
I've seen videos of that "bolt from the blue". Players in a soccer game, and there's not a cloud in the sky. Suddenly, you see this flash, with a loud crash of thunder, and nearly every player has collapsed to the ground. Thankfully, lightning victims carry no electrical charge, and
can be handled safely. And, since the strike can cause the victim to go into cardiac arrest, prompt First Aid, including CPR, is essential.
When I tell people that I'm a 2 time indirect lightning strike survivor, I tell them that "I carry no electrical charge, and can be handled safely". :)
