I definitely noted the recommendation of a switch in the radar
thread, and maybe the concept
was that it would be sacrificed rather than the laptop
. We don't get a lot of lightning in the San Francisco
Bay area, but I don't want to be foolish. On the other hand, adding a switch creates several more places for faulty connections. I think I have enough of those.
Thanks for your thoughts.
