Crash, bang, wallop: What a power-down. But what hit the kill switch?


Re: Not Unique...

I also remember that the old AT towers had a power switch on the front that was at ${mains}V across the terminals, as this was the good old days before ATX and soft-power on.

The first time I ever had 240V was when I was digging under the IDE cables and the hand that wasn't holding the well-earthed case came upon the bare terminals of the switch. Certainly took me by surprise...
