OK, so having moved into my new place over a month ago, I'm still finding moving-related fuckups. Case in point, last night I plugged in my exercise bike for the first time in a while (yay, first gym session at new house). Unfortunately, during the move the power adapter for the magnetic resistance and metering stuff would appear to have been mixed up during the move. Result: about two minutes into the circuit program I'd selected, the resistance started to grow, and grow, and then suddenly got really, really tough, accompanied by a smell of burning electrical wires. I've essentially killed my several-hundred dollar exercise bike.
This may be a blessing in disguise as now I'll be forced to go use the real one, but it also brings me to this moving tip:
Clearly mark all power adapters and electrical gear before moving them. Don't rely on it being moved in a particular box; it will go missing and you'll plug the wrong bastard in.
