Hi all and festive greetings.

Re: Exploding lightbulbs

I had a similar episode. My PC used to have a hysterical scream as the start-up sound. A really awful horrific scream. I was supporting a serious sales meeting when I was asked to use my PC as the main one had failed. Didn't go well!

I was watching Parliament on TV, the Brexit debate, yesterday and I kept thinking someone was breaking something in the chamber!

I like an interesting complication so I have a JH, a quarter repeater, a few chronographs and some interesting quartz ones too. A new interesting complication in a CW watch...
