I would like to suggest an idea for the next Ubuntu hour meeting in Kitchener.

Or KWLUG meeting.

A detailed presentation on surge protectors by an expert on the subject.

What are power surges, and how are they caused?

What kind of damage a surge does?

How does a surge damage electrical equipment?

Are surge protectors  necessary?

If so how necessary?

The different kinds of surge protectors on the market?

What makes a good surge protector?

What brands and models are good for computers and related equipment?

What brands and models are no good? 

And anything else we should know about the subject, to provide maximum protection at lowest cost, but did not know enough to ask?

Hi all, just a comment on the speed of shut-down since upgrading to 13.10, has anyone had the same experience? my system shuts down in record time now, around 3 seconds! used to be 13 to 16 seconds.Start up also faster than before.I'm using a PC, Dell vostro 220.
