Having begun to feel really smart ass at having solved my ToT
problems and basking in the glow of some of the over bright LEDs ( now
fitted with resistors despite only having a 3.3v supply) I made the
decision to expand to cover the entire system.
To do this I placed my order with RS-Components France and sat back to
await delivery today. Instead I received an email announcing that my
order was cancelled as a government inspector had ordered that they
were to supply "trade" only. As electronic components are not
readily available from retail outlets ( I did have a supplier in West
France but he is now 850 Kms distant) it does rather screw things up.
I still await a response from the UK Head Office.
To further make my day the Lausanne Police (Swiss) wrote to me
enclosing a fixed penalty notice from last July and all the usual dire
threats for non payment ( I was not aware that there are any 100Kms
per hour speed limits on their Autoroutes but one lives and learns).
