Actually I've been looking into this, I saw a set up someone else had and I am planning on doing something similar.
Basically it was just a 4 port outlet box, with a plug running out the back and then hooked up to a on/off switch on the top. A basic, do it yourself surge protector would be the easiest way to describe it.
I think I can pick up all the supplies at my local Menards for under $20.00-ish dollars. The only problem is I've NEVER played with wires before, does anyone know of any guides online for something along the lines I want to do?
