So you weren't HIGHLY offended by this then @SparkyChick !
Good to know you are made of more sterner stuff.
No, I just checked my username in case by some strange coincidence it had been changed to SparkyChap and figured the offender might benefit from a trip to SpecSavers :)

You don't spend the first 22 years of your professional working life surrounded by men in a male dominated industry without developing a thick skin, a foul mouth and a taste for real ale.... or at least I didn't :)

Workmanship is fine with me.

I'm not a subscriber to the current feminist ideas which seem to be focused around equality of outcome, not equality of opportunity. Hiring quotas and all that garbage. They want equality... they should work hard for the top jobs like men have to!

Plus they aren't good for work place banter, all the PC claptrap is killing the best jokes :D
Trouble is SparkyChick I'm old school can't get to grips with equality

From a periodic in a property with dreadful wiring.

It was so much worse once the covers were removed.

It doesn't look like it in the photo as I could poke the lens into the void, but the switch fuse that feeds the above 2 fuse boards it completely inaccessible. You can't get your hand in to reach it, as a stud wall has been built in front of it.

This join had several different colours of paint on it, so I assume it's been like it for a while... That cable spurring off of the ring final at this socket feeds 3 doubles.
Parts of the lighting circuit are also directly connected to the ring. I hope to go back to rewire as there are several things I couldn't quite find, such as the purpose of the red conductor that was connected to the neutral bar. Took me long enough to work out what was connected to what circuit, made more difficult by the light switches that were seized in the off position and various remote DP switches that sent power down a cable but no one knew what for.

Spider that appeared in the van. :eek: I would have let him stay if he was there tidying the place.
