Indeed. Though it seems to switch on and off at remarkably planned times

two weekends ago. No real rhyme or rhythm. Oh, and the other night it

Not the new farm I don't think. The transformer was added because the
farmer had a crap supply (like ours!) and was sick of replacing
equipment, or other quirks like turning on the milking machine would
brown-out and trip the cut-outs...
We get that to a degree. If I put on the kettle and the immersion heater
and flush the toilet (leads, eventually, to 2kW water pump cutting in)
you can see the lights getting dimmer and dimmer. In a way it is useful
- I can put the kettle on and when the lights go brighter I'll know it
has boiled. But in most ways it is just crappy...
