Re: Holds hand up in shame

The wait 5-10 seconds between powering off and powering on ANY appliance is now totally engrained in me after that incident. Better safe than sorry. I imagine hardly anyone is given the advice to pause between powering off/on appliances nowadays, but back in the late 1980s it was common knowledge, or so I thought, until the woman in question inadvertently destroyed my PC.
