now, I have a multimeter

Sorry for lack of blog entries recently. It has been a pretty busy week. And while planning on writing something last night, Laurent's fridge triggered the power point (electrical socket), and knocked off 1/4 of the circuit board (we have four meters). Just before midnight, I managed to restore the power to the one Laurent knocked off.

Unlike Don who has a soldering set and a multimeter, I finally caught up half way with Don. I still do not have any soldering equipment, but I got a multimeter today. Before the multimeter, I'd like to mention something more fundamental -

Anti Static Wrist Strap

(as usual, more photo follows...)

Don without a doubt knows well about the static charges. Static charges are quite danger to electronic components. I've had this anti static wrist strap for at least 6 or 7 years. What does that mean? I do install RAM and HDD into computers myself.

So today I bought a cheap digital multimeter, in fact the second cheapest one from a local Dick Smith Electronics.

Anti Static Wrist Strap

The reason for the digital multimeter? Not that I am interested to measure the current or resistance, but I need to check the conductivity.

So the conclusion for this blog entry: Antony is poor, he has never owned any multimeter until today, and he got himself a cheap one.

Just make sure your health insurance is up to date before you start messing with electricity. You are not licenced to touch the SCC or Energy Australia boards or meters!!

I only switched the circuit breaker back on.
Well, we had a technician for fridge came here yesterday, and an electrician here this morning. Don't worry.
