You'll likely pay a fair amount for their time. But learn from them while they're working for you.

They're paid what they are for a reason. Seriously.
I fully intend to get it fixed properly by a professional.

We need a professional to fix it. Mañana.

Currently running on a gruesome chain of extension cords plugged into a socket on the house power supply.
Here's hoping you don't overtax the circuit you're using as a workaround...

The "takes the entire estate down with it" sounds especially worrying. Usually when a circuit breaker trips it only cuts power to the circuit it's governing.

Yes, I'd say a trained professional is the way to go.

Good luck!

Had to down some productive GIMPS systems for what's likely to be several days or more, due to the furnace blower, that is a critical part of a central air conditioning system, no longer fulfilling its function. Upper level of the structure had ramped up to 95F/35C, triggering some automatic thermal shutdown, while I was out for several hours yesterday. (But it could have been worse, as in occurring during the 90F/32C outdoor ambient we've had earlier. Current ambient 71F/22C is helping; 85F/29C is in the near term forecast.) Some systems were already down for maintenance.

My own rule for my GPU crunchers is that only one of A/C or Crunchers may run at a given time. I only ethically justify running the GPU farms (which has added ~$200/month to my PG&E bill) by way of "doing GIMPS work on a Radeon 7 is an order of magnitude more efficient throughput/watt-wise than the next-best option", but running the A/C just to remove waste heat from the GPUs cuts 2x off that efficiency. Even in sunny CA there's been only a handful of days this summer where I had to shut down the crunchers for more than 8 hours.

Live footage shows the volcano in La Palma, Spain that began erupting on Sunday night. The eruption marks the Canary Islands' first in 50 years, and has forced the evacuation of 5,500 people, and has destroyed at least 100 houses.

The volcano will remain active for the next few days, regional leader Angel Victor Torres said.
@xilman - I hope the wind blows the other way for you?

Yes, still OK. Fine view from my window, though, especially as the sun has now risen as seen from halfway up the ash cloud but is still behind the cumbre for the bottom half, so the red glow is still visible down there. but the top half is a golden colour.

I use https://www.wunderground.com/wundermap for situational awareness wrt weather, along with several other data streams.

Hurrican Sam has formed into a Cat 4 rather sooner than most previous examples of manifest chaos. Please Google for additional knowledge.

Pray to whatever god(s) you like. And then take responsibility for yourself(s).

Googling turned up some neat images of the storm, and a number of news stories. This NPR story indicates that Sam is unlikely to hit land. It also indicates that there may be more late-season storms in the western part of the Atlantic basin.
