Back On Line

We had a power failure, and it appears to have done something unpleasant to the boot sector on my primary drive. That happened despite having a UPS and a second surge protector. (The UPS has surge protection built-in). I heard that lighting hit the power substation near us, which actually is about twelve miles away. Since the storm did not seem very close, I had not turned off my computer. It will take a while to get everything set up the way I want it, so it probably will be a day or two before I post anything substantive.
