On Sunday 6-Nov-2005, a nearby lightning strike took out the dial-up modem connecting reasor.com server to the internet.
In addition to the modem, the cable splitter inside my house was damaged, affecting both my tv and high-speed internet service, and had to be replaced. Equipment was also repaired on a the pole outside my house before my service was finally restored.
I just got out to the store today 12-Nov-2005, to replace the modem. Overall, reasor.com was unavailable for about 6 days.
