When you do this, remember that you are write-caching. That means that
power glitches that reset your computer and locking up due to RF in
the computer can cause you to loose content in the logs if it happens
at the wrong time.
At my place...
1) logger is on a ups (uninterruptible power supply). The power feed
from CP&L is glitchy and full of spikes. Also on weekends people get
sloshed and use their cars to cut down the power poles out on US 64.
Seems to be a local redneck sport.
2) doing grounds, bypasses, and ferrite beads on stuff coming into the
computer is important.
