Hi Guys,

 

In today’s episode we take questions and comments from the twitter feed and talk about power issues. Dave recently experienced a power outage for 10 hours and we talk about that, battery backups, software, and what to do and what not to do when you lose power. We also go over the news, forums, and Chris and Jim’s recent home server builds. Lots to talk about in episode 96.

Great Podcast, I have to agree w/ Dave...that storm up here in WI was crazy. One thing that I thought I'd point out was around the comment to not have surge protectors in the house if you have a whole home surge suppressor/protector at your wiring panel or point of entry. That main surge suppressor will "hopefully" :-) stop a surge that's coming in from outside your house; however it will not protect against surges that are generated from within your house by any device that's plugged in to the home's circuits.

 

I'm in the process of building a house and have been researching this stuff for when I have it wired, and it turns out that the majority of power surges that occur on your home circuits come from devices in your own home like a bad refrigerator, broken light fixture, etc. So even if you do have whole home protection, I'd still recommend having a surge protector on your important electronic devices. Think of it in computer terms like having a firewall on your router to protect from the outside, but if I was sitting on your computer I could get right to your WHS on the network without the router's firewall protecting anything.

Great show as always. Will be waiting for Jim's final verdict (we are still working on him to jump to our side, the core I3).

I hate to admit this but I've had a WHS for a few years now and I still don't have a UPS... I think it is time to invest in one. Thanks for the informative discussion!

Excellent show, lots to take in and plenty of good stuff. Thanks for the mention, I have been listening since @ show 45. It's one heck of a resource.

 

Thanks guys.

wodysweb - I was the one who made that comment and you make a good point here. Gives me something to think about.

 

On a side note, I still have most of my gear going thru either a UPS with surge guard on it or a surge protector all by itself. I just don't worry as much about it since I have the whole house protector. All three times I have had an issue, it has come from outside. Just my experience.

It's the little green + at the bottom right that will do it. If you hover the cursor over the zero, it will say Reputation.
