I only have 2 main plugs :( (our house is 40 years old, they didn't realise we would need more). From plug one leads to a 4 way extension with surge protect. Here includes a desk fan, a hi fi and a base for a cordless telephone. The 4th is occasionally used for a fan heater. From plug 2 leads to a 4 way reel extension which leads to an electric toothbrush charger, another desk fan, a 4 way extension which has the tv, video and satelite plugged into, and an 8 way surge protect kit which includes, pc, monitor, speakers, printer, macmini, tv aerial spliter and an automatic scart switcher.
It amazes me sometimes how much i have running from one mains socket.
