Happy 4th Everyone!

Recommended Posts

It has become a bit of a tradition to wish everyone well on major holidays so this 4th of July celebration is no exception!

"I would like to wish the Immunet team, forum members and guests alike a safe and happy 4th of July as always!"

I mentioned this last year but I think it's worth mentioning again, it's best to leave the pyrotechnics to the experts.

Cheers, Ritchie...

Mmm, smoked brisket! That does sound good Tom! I did pretty much the same thing actually, had a few friends over, broke out the grill and cooked some burgers & dogs, sucked down some cold suds while jammin' out to some rock n' roll on the patio. It was a good time!

Edit: Well, it was mostly a good time. A thunder storm rolled through so we had to take the party indoors for a while. Unfortunately, a close lighting strike fried my 50" HDTV and a HDMI splitter connected to it. Funny thing was they were both connected to a surge protector power strip when that happened and the power strip didn't even trip off. Those LED HDTV's are susceptible to damage by even the slightest power surges so I found out the hard way!

I ordered a new tv & HDMI splitter online, paid extra for 2 day shipping, so they should be delivered here tomorrow hopefully. An extra expense this month I certainly wasn't anticipating plus that tv wasn't even a year old yet. Bummer!

I'm just glad my computer didn't get fried too. We were streaming music videos to the tv at the time. The PC is connected to a different power strip plus I installed a new PSU a few months ago that (thankfully) also has built in over-voltage protection.

Oh, we had a storm too!

I did enjoy some suds myself :)

I am sorry to hear about the tv, that would make me incredibly sad.

I would just like to say if anyone else reads this and you love your wide screen HDTV make sure you have it plugged into a good voltage surge protector.

The higher the joules rating for the protector the better so don't go out and buy the cheapest one you can find. I got one ordered to replace the one that didn't protect my tv. This one has a 920 joules rating, has got a life time guarantee and a $20,000 equipment replacement warranty. It costs about twice as much as a standard power strip but I think it will be worth it.
