    Arrrrrrrrrgh

    I've been editing some video stuff that I have to get to the duplicators tonight. It was half way through a 4 hour render and my wife started ironing and tripped the ECB. The ironing HAS to be done, so I don't dare start it going again until she's finished. Looks like it will be a late night!

    Solution: Honda EU30iS Portable Petrol Generator

    With a 13 hour run time and a regulated sinusoidal wave form you'd be sorted for the bargain price of only £2,012.99 and some gas.

    A good UPS would shield it from spikes and give you enough time to reset the breaker though which may be cheaper.

    either the ECB is dodgy or the iron is! the pc and the iron on its own cannot pull the amount of ampage that would trip the circuit (enless its a really low apmped circuit - but one thing that will is something like the amount of energy that is earthed (grounded) - normally caused by LCD monitors and screen - this was the reason we had to put spilt the circuits up for our it rooms as 31 monitors leaving a milli-amp or so each was causing it to trip

    It's the iron that is dodgy. She overfilled the water.
