Technology in South Africa

In Africa we get to deal with all sorts of natural events that really don't work to well with IT equipment, personally lightning damage has cost me the most over the years even with protection devices often in place...

I opened up an outdoor router that stopped working a while back last week, the router itself was in a water proof outdoor enclosure to keep it safe. I was amazed to find that a wasp's had used the board to build a nest and the family had luckly moved on before I stuck my hand into the enclosure, definitely a new find for me on a circuit board.

Upon closer inspection I found a small network cable hole no longer in use which must have been how the wasp got in.
