Re: Dinner charge

Indeed, at school in the mid 80s, i brought a switchable vhf/uhf 405/625 line b/w set to school. I was very popular in the common room for a few hours till my housemaster informed me that 1, televisions were dangerous inside, and banned by the school rules, and 2, he didn't have a screwdriver.

I suspect both things were actually untruths designed to save me from electric shock
