    Boy the meter is sure running on this one.
    This sudden "spike" in punning could lead to an overload which could lead to a phase going out, or a major trip somewhere. But its OK cammerafodder has the standby power supplies ready and waiting.

    Lots of vigour and energy went into this thread, with everyone generating maximum demand for puns on the spur of the moment..

    I'll get my coat now.

    OK, i`ll give it a go..

    I watched the programme and thought it was very Institution of Electrical Engineers interesting.
    I especially like the different three phase neutral and earth designs of pylon found in other countries.
    Cant wait for residual current circuit breaker next weeks show.

    How did i do?
