Recntly my small North Canterbury town was hit by lightening,
It gave the guy working on the roof of the local supermarket (which took the direct hit) at the time a scare and probably has converted him to some religion in double quick time.
Up shot is since I dont live that far from it, it promptly roasted my PC's motherboard, a laser printer, among other things, my Telecom supplied Thompson wireless ADSL modem.
While AA insurance have made life exceptionally hard to make a claim, surprisingly, Telecom, CSR's on calling to enquire if they would SELL me a new modem (as I was out of contract) offered to GIVE me a new one...FREE!
It arrived within 24 hours ,
Good work, Thankyou!
