Posted: 5 Days 22 Hours ago by: geoffSorry, can't find in the thread where somebody was whinging about washing machine stating not to run off a power-strip. This is because of extra contact resistance causing heat/burning, and potentially (ha ha) poor grounding/earthing.

Posted: 6 Days 7 Hours ago by: Whisky-daveDepends how big you see this potential, this is probabbly why most houses don't have enough sockets and people have to use extention leads of which the vast majority have 3 extra sockets to use some have more. So, but I doubt more than

Posted: 24 Days 22 Hours ago by: Commander KinseyIf you'd seen his wife you'd understand why he cheated. She has more armpit hair than any man I've seen and refuses to shave it off. Indeed, nothing is more fun than nature. And yes I was naked on all occasions. Maybe shorts scare s

Posted: 25 Days 5 Hours ago by: David BrooksPerhaps a silly question, but ......... How many of your students are likely to view any photo which you might choose to post in this Usenet group? Even if they DID discover such a photo, what punishment could be meted out to you - an
Posted: 25 Days 6 Hours ago by: Whisky-daveTrue it's fairly recent thing. I do have some pictures, a few where students have fallen asleep in the lab. It';s difficult to know whats allowed but basically either they have to give permision or not be able to be identified as indiv

Posted: 25 Days 11 Hours ago by: Whisky-daveYes they do seem cuter than rats, I get a couple of foxes but only at night. Wish I could show you some pictures of my students but that's not allowed and they aren't cute anyway ;-)
