Hello, everyone:

If this is something that’s so obvious that I could trip over it please be kind & don’t roll your eyes so far up into their sockets that they get stuck. OK? Anyway, is there a way to search in the forum? If I could search & potentially find something I’m interested in I’d be able to avoid posting questions that have already been answered. Please let me know.

Thanks,
Pete

Hi Pete, look in the list of Links on the left side of the screen.
One grey button is labelled 'Site Search'.
Cheers, Doug 😎
BTW: any progress on the sketch for your lighting connections?

Thanks again, Doug:

You answered so quickly that your eyes must not have stuck in the rolled up position for very long. Regarding the sketch, I’m sorry it’s taking a long time but I’ll get to it today. I have narcolepsy as well as two kinds of sleep apnea. I use an APAP machine to keep my airway open at night & I take modafinil during the day to help stave off falling asleep suddenly & sometimes in awkward circumstances. I frequently have spells when the modafinil doesn’t work & it’s impossible for me to stay awake. Then I’ll sleep for up to 24 hours straight before my brain convinces me to either get up or get soaked. Luckily my brain & I are on good speaking terms or my wife & I wouldn’t be. Sometimes I’m only up for about 15 minutes before I get overwhelmed by the urge to sleep & I’ll be comatose again. Narcolepsy is the reason I had to retire early.

Hi Pete, I happened to be taking a coffee break!
Anyway I've fitted me eyeballs with return springs 😉
Sorry to hear of the affliction 🤔
Can sympathise, I have a much milder form.
When I'm really concentrating on a job no problem, as soon as I'm done something switches and says 'Snooze time'!
20 or 30 mins later I'm back on the job 😉
No panic for the sketch, was just wondering.
All the best, Doug 😎
To use a quaint old English expression; Pecker up old chap! 👍

Thank you, sir.

My wife volunteered me to fix an R/C fire truck for neighbor’s grandkids. It’s a mechanical problem so it was right up my street (another British expression). I’ve got it fixed & nearly reassembled already, then it’s on to voltage measurements & making a sketch to put them on.
