    Given the following information, what do you think I should do to prevent my board from dying/short circuiting/blowing up etc. Theres so much stuff on here and it scares me sometimes.

    Each pedal goes into one input of my 2 power supplies: trex Fuel tank and Gator Bus 8 power supplies.

    Pedals are:
    tu3
    vox wahwah mod
    Proton
    EHM Freeze
    Noise suppressor
    phase 90
    wampler ectasy
    Little Big Muff
    Keeley rat
    CS3 compressor boss
    MXR 6 band Eq
    boss PS6()
    EHM NEO mistress
    digitech weapon
    EHM Small clone
    MXR micro amp
    flashback
    marshall vibratrem
    boss fv50h-volume pedal
    carbon copy
    HOF


    2 pedals are always on: the Boss NS2 and Boss CS3

    5 of the 22 pedals are running with a one spot.

    fairly good cables used for each pedal etc.

    I always keep the board in a nice room temperatured area.


    and my power supply plugs each plug into an extention cord which goes to the wall.

    So, given all of this, am I set to have it last a long time? or should I be a little more cautious.

    As long as it doesn't get moved much, and all the cables used are in solid working condition, you really shouldn't have any issues. If you're gigging a lot, or switching the pedals on it frequently, you may have problems more often. The most likely issue I can think of is using that much cable may dull your treble a bit, but since you have a couple always on pedals acting as buffers, along with some buffered bypass pedals, you should be in good shape.
