    Hi again vale and fern, when i built houses, each 3 pin wall plug had the wire go all the way back to  the mains wall box, so each plug had a fuse in case of an overloaded socket.

    Now, the electricians do what is called loop wireing, they loop 2 or 3 or 4, 3 pin sockets to one wire, then run that wire back to the box–so that one fuse has a number of 3 pin plugs connected to it. If you plug an elect jug into one 3 pin plug, a toaster into another, and an elect pan into the third, thats how fires occur, as the wiring is overloaded.

    I have that problem in this house, but i have put overload protection into my computer system, but i saved my system by shutting down, and finding the cause

    7 letter common English words only. No proper nouns. * Each player must complete the previous player’s word * and then post one 7 letter word of their own choosing – WITH THE 2nd, 4th and 6th LETTERS MISSING & REPLACED WITH A DASH * If a players word has not been correctly completed that player will re-post that word to be replayed until the correct word is found.

    Wow- whatever made ‘them’ change to the loop wiring? We are all using more and more electric appliances/gadgets these days – it sounds extremely dangerous. The majority of us are blissfully ignorant of the dangers & probably put our lives on the line every time we plug in another gadget – just the thought of it makes one’s hair stand on end!!!
