Re: OT: servers vs. lightning and power outages

Excerpts from Jason Hsu's message of Mon Mar 14 19:31:00 +0100 2011:

Others already answered this, but I'd like to stress the fact that
you'll need proper protection on _all_ levels. Surge protectors will
only do what they're intended to do if coarse protection does its job as
well and so on. Match the ("input") ratings of each protector to the
("output") ratings (response time etc.) of the previous protection
level. Make sure _all_ entry points to the house are protected
(including telephone line, broadband cable, garage lighting, etc.).
A proper ground system is of equal importance. Jim Gettys can tell [1].
