Ask Marge Schott. She was in trouble after CG&E discovered
the current transformers had been shunted at Riverfront Stadium.
I\'m sure it worked well.
Until she got caught.
I\'m pretty sure that\'s when the \"more trouble than it\'s worth\"
kicked in.

Apparently it was done just before the stadium was opened. She was fined for all the stolen power, plus interest by the utility.

Not following how pulses will not affect a mechanical meter


Because of inertia. The current moves a wheel in there if you hit it fast enough it cannot accelerate fast enough.
It can always accelerate fast enough. A localised short (microseconds or
so) sharp pulse just deforms the metal briefly, storing the energy in
spring action. As long as the metal is elastic, that energy will spread
to a uniform acceleration.

When you put a ceramic cup down on a stone benchtop, it comes to rest in
the distance and time for which the surfaces are *deformed*. Even when
they\'re heavy, dense and brittle. That\'s true of any impact. Same deal
with an inertial pulse delivered by electromagnetism.

Alright fuck it. There is one way.

You \"tap\" the power for milliseconds but at a very high peak current which is maybe the same wattage but you have done it so fast the meter misses some of it.

That is the ONLY way to really beat it and I am not sure it works on non-mechanical meters.
That is false.
Short pulses are used to drive power tools at low speed.
Now if you use short pulses you need BIG currents and the losses
in wiring resistance increase a lot.
Inductance too start to be problematic.
Think of when you drive a nail in wood with a hammer.

FWIW..... I needed to refurbish the printer rollers on a Dell P1500 this weekend. I read everything I could find about what products to use or not use. I have a chemistry background so that helped. At any rate, I settled on the following simple cocktail for restoring the rollers.... It worked fantastic:

1 teaspoon DOT brake fluid
1 teaspoon naphtha (old fashioned lighter fluid)
1cc acetone
Largely, that replicates an old typewriter-platen-restore formula, adding acetone.
The naphtha was solvent for typewriter ribbon ink (and early dot-matrix printers)
and the DOT brake fluid was a bit of plasticizer and glycerine. I\'m thinking
a lighter plasticizer might work as well (Armor-All vinyl finish?).

Most modern printer roller technologies are compatible with isopropanol, so
the acetone might be slightly more aggressive than required. Rollers that take a glaze
from paper, and a bit of dirt, take well to a scrub with green Scotchbrite with soap or
alcohol. Even typewriter ink was removed (slowly) with isopropyl.

A good roller cleaning should hold you for a few years. Congratulations on the
careful formulation; you didn\'t wast time OR material!

Usual cause is sagging door due to hinge wear. Maybe you can adjust it & test for leakage & interlock alignment.
Yes, probably too late for those that wanted to know.

Don\'t know the model number, but WD40 in the latch fixed mine.

OTOH we had to rescan about a month ago and that was the first time in

We had to rescan earlier this year, just because of a new subchannel
(56-4, AntennaTV) that the local NBC station added.
So does that mean if you hadn\'t rescanned, you\'d still have gotten all
the channels but that one.

Could you have just punched in 56,4 and the tv would find it, and then
ou could add it to the internal list, but they said to rescan because
that\'s a simple instruction and applies to everyone, whereas the
instructions for adding a station vary by tv.

Yes, it was just that one that needed to be added.

I can\'t try 56.4 now, since its already scanned (checking it would
require disconnecting the antenna, rescanning, then reconnecting the
antenna. Too much to do for something that probably won\'t worh and won\'t
help if it does). Trying 22.4 (the physical channel is 22) is ignored
(on all t TVs I tried).

Well, you hit a sore point, The little CECB box, you can type the physical channel and the virtual channels programmed or not programmed will show up.

On a 55\" System 6 \"Smart\", very dumb TV, nothing happens.

it can only delete-all and re-scan. That\'s are the brain cells it has.

Can it know about an antenna rotator? No.

You can also have for the same physical channel: Say 36
6-2
51.1
51.5
51.101

There was some major shifts, at least two in the Philadelphia area. I don\'t know if scan and add would have worked for one of them.
