Q: I'm leaving town for break. What should I do with my computer?
A: Well, some folks take their PC home. If you don't, you should be sure that you turn the PC and all of its accessories (printer, scanner, speakers, etc.) off. After you've done that, unplug everything! Don't forget to unplug your network cable, phone cable, cablemodem cable, and all of those accessories. While all dorm students must unplug everything, off-campus students often forget to do so. While students are gone, the local utilities try to do a lot of "catch up" work, which often results in power disconnects, surges, brown-outs, etc.

This geek will be playing video games and looking for a job, but that's no different than any other time of the year. Ok, so this geek will be doing the above things in the peace and quite atmosphere of Radford while all the drunks are away. Yay! =)
