I am sure it was just another casualty of the server overload.

Yes, you were doing a great job!

If you read back to the 'Missing Threads' post it should explain things. Someone probably added a post to the thread while the Server was full and it ended up an empty thread. I saw several that day with no title or content.

Once again, Welcome to all new Members.

To all the newbies. HELLO!!!!!

To all the lurkers join in and sign up. This is a great bunch of people. Don't worry if you are not an electrician. I am not one and I seem to have been accepted here.

I started by looking for electrical safety on Google. After a few months I joined because I wanted to reply to something. Then I slowly started to post. Now I am hooked. Don't be shy. Like I said in the lost post I believe it was sparky that said grab a mitt you are in the game.


Edited because stupid fingers not working right.
