I've lived in this house almost a year, and I finally re-wired the computer room so I have a dedicated breaker and grounded outlets for the computers. This place did have 3 bedrooms (1 is the computer room), 2 bathrooms, the living room, the porch light, 2 basement lights, and the furnace fan all running off ONE 15 AMP BREAKER! By some miracle, the breaker has only blown once since I've been here.

It took me this long to decipher the maze of wires in the basement enough that I could do the computer room and be fairly certain I wouldn't lose power somewhere else. Now I just have to figure out how to get a grounded outlet for my stereo (I've already lost a receiver to a power surge), and how to get my whole damn kitchen off the same breaker.

Ah, the joys of home ownership. I know I could have a lot worse things to complain about, but it's still annoying.
