Re: Brexit all over?

As the post was not deemed to be offensive but "almost totally incomprehensible" I ask that it should be reposted with comments pointing out the error of my ways so I could avoid having my posts deleted. Sure, here is the more comprehensible of your two posts... I can blame the EU for sta...

Re: Brexit all over?

Two almost totally incomprehensible posts removed. Please try to avoid huge levels of nested quotes, especially unattributed ones. If you are having to resort to using colour then it is usually borderline unreadable. Try simply to fish out an excerpt from one person and quote it adding a simple rep...

Re: "website busy" notice.

You are lucky, Chris. I often get a message on my mobile saying the website is slow to respond, only for the desired page to appear a second or so later. I don't often use my PC these days, unless I want to post some data. And there I was Terry pulling your leg on another board about your steam-pow...

Re: Earth Bonding in Bathroom

Can anyone help? Hi SG, There are two separate ways of mitigating against the added danger of shock in a bathroom. Up and until 2008 the only way available was through “supplementary equipotential bonding” around your bathroom. This involved connecting together all exposed metallic parts entering t...

Re: Exam success!

I was under the impression that the industry was working to IEE 19th Edition... I was told yesterday that the first amendment to the 18th is already well underway. Better start saving up for the next set of books, course, and exam, which will be needed some time after the inevitable second amendmen...

Ah, multiple choice questions.... I'm working on the basis that pure luck alone would have produced a 33.3 R % mark as one answer in multiple-guess is usually so daft that even the dimmest of candidates can see it for what it is.

Exam success!

Just emerged from my 18th Edition Wiring Regs exam. 100% Yay!

Son seems fairly uninterested in my elation so I thought I'd tell you guys. As well as The Snug it has also driven me into The Blue Anchor in Crowborough for a celebratory pint of Guiness.
