Hi, can't sleep.

Wish the monitior and key board leads would reach the thrown (toilet).

Story goes, lady ring up because she had gone outside to turn the coolroom condensing unit off in the dark, grabbed the wrong 3 phase isolator, which had been previously disconnected, apparently!. Isolator comes off wall while in hand and exposed wires at the bottom of isolator hits sheetmetal of condensing unit, leaving 30mm diameter hole and dazed lady.

Lady waits for yours truely to attend, in a shop with half its lights working. Check to find electrical feed for apparently disconnected isolator wired straight to the 3 phase bus bars in the distrubution board. NO circuit protection at all. Lights out due to 100 amp service fuse on building blown.

A very lucky lady.

When will it ever end.

Regards Peter.:rolleyes:
