Bad language and exploding multi meters. [Dec. 23rd, 2008|04:30 pm]

It was almost Laurel and Hardy repair the immersion heater. I blew up a probe on my meter. big flash and melted metal.

I thought I'd thrown out the old thermostat, when we had established it was the new thermostat that was at fault... then just after Karen had found the old thermostat and I had fitted it... Karen noticed the RESET switch on the old thermostat... When did they start putting trip switches on thermostats?

Well at least there's hot water again.

I'm having a beer.

Sabastian was about as fast as a one legged horse in the Grand National when it came to eating the worms, any slower and the worm would have died of old age!
Now when it comes to speed eating....Mark's your man!

Quote "You won't find the thermostat, I probably threw it out with the immersion heater!" But then you ARE a hoarder and I knew,even in a stripped out room you still wouldn't resist the urge for a "I think I will put that there, just for safe keeping, you never know when it will come in useful" moment. Then of course there is the "Where did I put my glasses?" which makes finding anything, even in your house, a bit difficult. Even so, I was just as suprised to find it myself.
It was funny to watch you jump as the metal pins on your multimeter turned to metal vapour but there was no way I was going to hold onto the meter as you suggested. I ain't that stupid!
As for the old (2 weeks old) 'stat, your face was a picture when I said, having looked at it carefully, "What does this red button marked Reset do then?" as I pushed it in. "Click!"
Laurel and Hardy? More like Charlie Chaplin!
