More power

I had a whinge to the electricity company the other week about the power, and asked them if it was possible to check if there was enough variation in the power supply here that it could be causing the problems with my monitor and amplifier. It’s only a theory of course, but the problems are very, very irritating. And all since those three new houses got built over the back fence…

They sent a very cheerful bloke around last Wednesday with various gadgets. Problem is someone told him I was having problems with interference on my TV and radios… which I’m not. At least I don’t think I am. So the gadgets he had couldn’t measure the power supply. Hmm.

He said he’d take a look at the equipment anyway. So I turned it on. And waited. Did it do its thing? In front of a trained professional who might have been able to help rectify the problem? Of course not. No, but it happened ten minutes after the guy had left. Argh.

Anyway, I’m now waiting for the electricity company to send someone out who can actually look at the problem I seem to be having.
