      Alas, I was a few years past 50 when I got the Golden Bullet after 27 years service!
      Got me Bus Pass, but not an OAP yet!

      You'd have to go back to the late 60's to find the old round pin fuseless plugs. And that's way before home computers!
      Yep, about '69 when I came down South and lived in a basement bedsit in Norbiton, all I had was 3 x 5 amp sockets (which was the small round pin sockets, the larger ones were 15 amp).

      And before anyone says anything, yes I'm another SOG, but still got another couple of years before I get the Bus Pass and retire early.
      (Hopefully by that time the present situation might be a bit better).
