Couple of new pages for your entertainment

I have made a couple of spoof public safety announcement videos about capacitive droppers given my immense dislike of them, I built a capacitive dropper circuit myself out of junk box parts onto veroboard and used this in the first of the two videos, the second one deals with the proliferation of cheap LED lightbulbs that use the capacitive dropper as the driver circuitry owing to its simplicity.

Then comes the museum of electronic and electrical deathtraps that deals with anything electrical that can potentially kill you, including my capacitive dropper circuit as that seriously is dangerous, what I created with the internals of an LED bulb after opening it up for my second video, after filming of course, and my third "exhibit" is one of those nasty universal plug adapters shipped with Chinese products.
