Remember guys, the kids are off this week from school and have the tendency to become bored. Don't let them mess with you.

Assuming this is true (which I'm very dubious of) you could plug it in all you want as long as you haven't downloaded this bad update from tekin. As far as I know, there haven't been any updates from tekin in a while so unless you have some beta software for testing, there is no way for this to be true.
