    So I need a new cheap monitor (I am thinking thrift store)... and surge protector apparently. Except the wiring in the house isn't grounded so I'm not sure the surge protector does anything anyhow.
    There are surge protectors with battery backups that will keep you on up to 3 hours. I used to have one of those and they were great. Not cheap but probably worth it. At least it'll let you turn everything off properly and unplug it rather than getting zapped or fried by the power outage.

    We get so many storms and power outages that few years ago hubby bought a Back-UPS. All the electronics are connected to it. Since then me hadn't had any of them fry. Worth the money.

    Yeah I'm in DC and there are some stores without power right now.

    Calling it quits, earnings was good, but in order to end the week with a SPARK, I have to make 50-60 tomorrow! Oh boy!

    Yes, that sounds like a very good idea. I got very lucky that it was only my old CRT monitor that died. The computer and real monitor were on the same circuit -- I'd be down to turking on an antique Dell laptop running Vista. Ugh.

    They never paid the bonus for a HIT I did 6/24/17. I know they're slow, but...

    Anyhow, this one took like 4 minutes. So good regardless.

    My son's monitor works! Whew. He had to use a different outlet. Glad it wasn't zapped.
