Well that was interesting, I was in the bathroom this morning when I heard a dripping noise, looked around and saw water dripping from the lightbulb. On closer inspection it turned out that the water was coming through the roof at the light fitting, running down the cable, around the bulb holder and onto the bulb itself.

Isn't rented accommodation fun? _band3

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

I'm sure it's ok PM, you probably have one of these installed


The Dripper! (Modified Circuit - works better!)

Just when you get all comfy in bed you hear it.... Drip....Drip....Drip. But when you stumble into the bathroom to give the faucet a twist, the dripping sound stops. After a few trips back and forth you venture out without turning on the lights- to "sneak up" on the drip. The only problem is that you can't see anything! Well, this fate can befall a friend (hereafter referred to as "victim") with a little help from you and the Dripper. The Dripper produces a slow dripping sound but only when the lights are off. The circuit is based on a low power version of the two-transistor flasher and should run on a 9 volt battery for weeks.
