    Call me Debbie Downer BUT ... Reference to the electrical solution stated in the podcast (as a certified NFPA Fire Inspector) I feel it necessary to clarify that you should never daisy chain extensions, power strips or tri/quad plugs. For example a multi plug device into another multi plug device. Extension cords are and were never meant to be permanent electrical solutions as tested by Underwriters Lab (UL). Any use over 90 days means you should be installing outlets for a long term solution.

    I have seen a crazy number of cubicles where the little electrical heater, small coffee maker, PC, chargers etc were all plugged into multiple power strips or the tri-plug devices all daisy chained together going into one outlet. Eventually these 'may/will' fail.

      You're not wrong but my options are pretty limited in my office...i've got access to two different circuits and keep PCs balanced across the wires. I dont have microwaves or space heaters running...mostly powering LED light panels, and other low-draw hardware.

    Flashback. A friend of mine back in the '80s had a LASER computer. I remember it was pretty decent, and improved upon the Apple II design of which it was a clone. Then the legal problems surfaced, I think...
