So we aparently had a power surge today while I was at work. Lovely... after all these days of power DROPS, we get a surge.

I get home to discover that this surge had some longer term effects.

Long story short... my Xbox Media Center is fried. Kaput. Deader than death. This is a bloody pain in the ass for various reasons, as this was my media center. Replacing it wll cost about $80 (or more...)

But no, it doesn't stop there. My fucking Xbox 360 is fried as well! At least the power brick is... the light on it doesn't even light up when it's plugged in.
Most ridiculous part? Replacing the damn brick costs $100! I am not making this up. The power supply for a $200 system will cost me $100. This is just... so very not cool.

This is assuming that my 360 itself isn't fried... without a working power supply, I can't tell!

I don't have this kind of money after the holidays. Fuck this motherfucking fuckfuck.

The surge also blew Alli's $70 high end surge protector... PLUS some lights that were attached to it.

And by blew, I mean "smells like burning"
