Burn the fuse - How to protect the electrical appliances in your house AND YOUR LIFE - Something which you already know, keep reading though

The home electricity lines run on a 230 V line. The electricity board suddenly decided to give away a generously higher voltage of 440 v to the home line in my neighbourhood. Wanna know what happened?
Television sets burst, Fans breathed smoke, Tube light chokes burst with huge sound effects and occasional display of sparkling colours. The choke burst in my house. Now now before everybody started blaming the error that happened let me ask some questions, why didn’t the fuse in their houses go out when the voltage increased? Why did it continue to conduct a dangerously high current onto appliances?
Power = Voltage X Current.
If voltage increases the power increases, this power should produce heat energy which will burn the fuse. A fuse is just a wire; Just a simple thin wire.
What might appear on the outside as a sudden calamity actually did not happen suddenly. It actually happened so gradually that people did not notice it at all.
Let's rewind back to sometime. Whenever we had …

(UPDATED!) Motorola Fire XT/ XT530/ XT531 all in one guide to rooting, Increasing Phone memory, Applications, Tweaks and resources – Compiled

I own a Motorola Fire XT myself and I thought it would be of good help if I compiled the resources for this phone together in one page with links for other people to use. All tweaks and methodologies mentioned are because of the hard work of a number of developers. I do not claim any ownership or responsibility to the stuff that I list here. They are not mine. I just happened to search the internet for my own phone and found these links. Respect the Devs. Thank them. I just compiled all the resources here. Now that we have this information across, let’s get started.
The following links worked perfectly for my Motorola Fire XT.
Rooting Motorola Fire XT:
It's just that some users made a claim that their phone soft bricked when trying to factory reset after rooting. Am adding it as a caution. You can still flash SBF files to revive your bricked phone, yet am just saving you tonnes of worry.

Best Dialogues from V for Vendetta and their meanings and Quotations

“Creedy: Die! Die! Why won't you die?... Why won't you die?
V: Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof.”
V for Vendetta is one of my favourite movies and I thought I’d put up a collection of good quotes from it. The Quotes are taken from IMDB Memorable Quotes, thanks to IMDB.
The glory of an Idea! Evey Hammond: [voiceover] Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot. But what of the man? I know his name was Guy Fawkes and I know, in 1605, he attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament. But who was he really? What was he like? We are told to remember the idea, not the man, because a man can fail. He can be caught, he can be killed and forgotten, but 400 years later, an idea can still change the world. I've witnessed first-hand the power of ideas, I've seen people kill in the name of them, and die …

You don't know where l've been, Lou!

“It was right then that I started thinking about Thomas Jefferson on the Declaration of Independence and the part about our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And I remember thinking how did he know to put the pursuit part in there? That maybe happiness is something that we can only pursue and maybe we can actually never have it. No matter what. How did he know that? “ - The Pursuit of Happyness
All hell let loose in my life the moment I got an android smart phone. The new features and possibility of my rooted (I lost my warranty within a month) android kept me glued to it and enthralled me that I started getting addicted to the momentary happiness whenever there is an update or enhancement. I would go through several technical statistics. (Call me an out of control freak at the moment if you want to; and watch me not care as you read further)
