Folks,
I have posted a query about RCDs & ground source heat pump drives on the 'new forum' and have a had a number of useful responses.

I would have posted here if I'd have known that this forum was still operational!
Anyhow, if anyone has any experience with heat pump stuff, please pop over and add your comments.

Thanks in anticipation.

If you read the 'heading' of the forum... it states that this forum will be 'locked' soon.

I have been following both wiring forums and posting still in both. I think all who are regulars here are keeping up with the other one as well.

Also, don't be suprised if you don't get an immediate answer as not all the regulars are that regular.....

As to where is it, it is here:- https://communities.theiet.org/discussions/

As to when the changeover is, currently both are active, I'm guessing that this one will close for new postings at the end of February, but that's just my guess.

No exact date has yet. been given for closure.

Folks,
Many thanks for your input thus far - I had a fruitful discussion on site today but still feel the onset of paralysis by analysis over this RCD business! I need to get the box on the wall instead of just pondering all the time!
Just one of those days!

Zoom, since when did mushrooms wonder, or even wander. Perhaps you were thinking about what they are fed on?

"Where exactly is the new forum? When is official changeover?"

Have you at least two distinct and relatively enduring personality states and have trouble remembering certain events?

Lol! Oh I wish Legh!!!

We're hoping to switch over to screen names early next week but, there may be a slight delay due to Jury Service obligations of a crucial player in the team.

I'll update everyone once we know more.

In all the project risk analysis I have done over the years I must admit I, and others doing the risk workshops, had never considered or included Jury Service as a risk. And of all the likely and unlikely external risks that have occurred on projects I have been involved with it has never happened. I have even had to include the likelihood of tube strikes in London for a project in Manchester!

You live and learn!

There again I have never had to do jury service having been eligible for around 50 years. Probably just as well I would probably find them all guilty

I'd bang up the judge as well.... and call it work experience!

It must happen from time to time. The last company I worked for had a section in the employee handbook about jury service - some words to the effect of while the company of course recognised employees civic duties etc. etc., it strongly urged employees "not to volunteer for anything" when it came to jury service and used every legitimate opportunity in the system to explain the disruption that extended absence from work would cause for the company and request where possible to be allocated to short simple trials rather than long complex ones. I guess they too had been sting at some point in the past.

In my experience when you write your excuse and pass it to the court usher to give to the judge he or she is not likely to take a simple 'work will miss me' as an excuse, unless perhaps you have a job like heart surgeon or sole carer for an elderly relative.
They may be more likely actually to take into consideration 'I am colour blind' or "I have poor eyesight" if the trial is one that needs poring over lots of coloured coded tables of things like 'phone transcripts or traffic movements.

As it was described to me, if you were to allow everyone who wished to wiggle out of it, you would end up with a jury that is not balanced, and is comprised of only the folk who don't have a job to do or don't feel motivated. That woud over represent the unemployed, retired or the 'am I bovvered' types - Who may not be an ideal choice of jurors for handling a complex case. A key part of the way the jury system works is it needs some folk who have been out and seen real folk being both honest and dishonest, as they can look at a witness and go 'hmm - do I trust this story ?' based on real life experience, rather than just watching daytime TV or youtube.

Luckily for me the case I was on was only expected to be 2 weeks long and actually finished a few days early, unlike the one in the adjacent court, that suddenly got far more complex than expected and eventually ran for the best part of 8 weeks...

I think if you tell the Judge that you have been involved in a fundamental religious sect. That should be sufficient to get off. Do make sure though you can back it up with an alibi. as it will be regarded as perjury and then you'll spend time locked away for longer than the jury service...
