Your logic has some merit, Will, but try not to take it so seriously. This article isn’t meant to be taken as cold-hard fact. It’s the author’s opinion. A lot of the naysayers here obviously read it, took offense to the distinctions they think the author is making, and then felt upset because they probably fit into one of the areas they think wasn’t glorified in the article. Also, I personally wouldn’t feel comfortable calling anyone a computer scientist unless they studied and/or have a degree in CS. Just feels icky and wrong. *shiver*
hi Jignesh I was following through ur various posts on meter bypass. I have a scenario on which I would like ur valuable expert comments. I live in a multi storied government quarter. I would like to know how to bypass the single phase electronic meter. It is giving me sleepless nights. Presently both the live and the neutral from the meter goes to a MCCB which then terminates in our flats option I am considering is like using 2 wires from one live phase from main connection. One goes through the meter and other directly to the house. Since distance from the meter to our house is considerable I cannot discreetly lay a new line to the flat I plan to disconnect the neutral in the MCCB and connect the unmetered live wire to the neutral port of the MCCB. In this way 2 wires both having the same phase would be coming to my flat from a single MCCB. We have 2 separate earth connections to the flat. For neutral I plan to use the earth wire. The second earth will be used for the three pin connections so that they are secured. The metered live phase could be used for some very low load to ensure meter running for atleast the minimum units. The unmetered phase will be used for rest of the loads. My query is-
1) Will the MCCB allow 2 live connections through it (both would of same phase so no 440 volts chance)?
2) Can I install a MCB with the earth which I would using as neutral. IF so, of how much rating.
3) What safety precautions should I take for preventing electrical shocks and equipment safety.
• Road warriors: People who shove their laptops into their bags indiscriminately will want the extra security of an SSD. That laptop may not be fully asleep when you violently shut it to catch your next flight. This also includes folks who work in the field, like utility workers and university researchers.
• Speed demons: If you need things done now, spend the extra bucks for quick boot-ups and app launches. Supplement with a storage SSD or hard drive if you need extra space (see below).
• Graphic arts and engineering professionals: Yes, we know we said they need hard drives, but the speed of an SSD may make the difference between completing two proposals for your client and completing five. These users are prime candidates for dual-drive systems (more on that below).
• Audio engineers and musicians: If you're recording music, you don't want the scratchy sound from a hard drive intruding. Go for quieter SSDs.
