Semi retired old time computer nerd who started programming on a Commodore Pet.

Since I'm also active in the Physics forum I should add that I started as a theoretical chemist, moved into solid state photochemistry and finally worked in industry as a colloid scientist. I only became a full time computer nerd in 1997.

comment Fleming's left hand rule
@user45220: Because that's a generator not a motor, i.e. it's using motion to create a current not current to create motion, so you need to use the right hand rule.

comment Is “eco” shower mode actually using less power?
@SebastianTroy: that does suggest that the Eco mode switch isn't doing anything.
