However on this wiring setup they have used (from memory) female barrel type connectors, and all earthing seems to be of the male type. To save me buying...

    Advertising and cutting back in these times

    This isn't about the pros and cons of the various job lead and advertising sites. Had an email from checkatrade saying that during April and probably future months you can either pay a reduced 50% monthly fee or become associated member which means you won't appear in general search results but...

    Just another reminder - Seem to do a lot of these

    I clocked a member today replying to one thread with 'just get a sparky in it'll take 10 minutes', and then in another literally said 'get your money out and get a sparky in'. So this is a polite reminder. Don't do that. If they were going to get a sparky in, they would have done. If you...

    General rant about the standards of driving these days!

    Is it just me or is the general standard of driving going down hill? I had a 'little' commute home yesterday, from Irvine in Scotland to just north of Cardiff. I get really fed up of the number of 'CLODs' (Center Lane Only Drivers) that travel on motorways. I'm tootling along on the inside lane...
