Re: Light

Maybe we can consider candles to be analog and electric light as digital

The analog would fail in a slight breeze.

That's all it takes to shut down our power around here, then we get out the candles.

They didn't: They sat in cold, dark rooms and were persuaded by the politicians that it was 'good for them'.

Likewise queuing for bread and other essentials was all part of the joy of a socialist state.

Come to that; remember how long it used to take to get a phone line connected in this country in the days of the GPO?

I suspect that was a military scare story.

Re: Light

Thought we'd banned political threads, or does a bunch of old farts talking the usual old fart nonsense not count as political anymore?

No "old farts" on here so maybe you've got confused ( it happens in old age ) Watching the BBC Parliament Channel and seeing those sat in the "House", constantly talking nonsense, could be the cause of your confusion.
