Thanks. Such console really "improves the user experience". Isn't that in the Geda that they use 3 state-bits? Can't remember for sure.

This is the HDTV version, they sold later a SSTV version a little bit cheaper.

Do you know that 38.509% of the persons who change a light bulb on Sundays are very good swimmers, 89.4% of them have been in the 3 first places of 2 or more swimming competitions in the 23 previous years.

In the 90s the problem of changing a light bulb became a topic of studies, because vendors identified that this was a promising market, so the persons changing light bulbs were the subject of a lot of studies in the western world.

It quickly appeared that a part of those persons would change inoperative light bulbs only on Sundays, but the reasons of such behavior were still to be found. Many surveys were necessary to explain this strange thing.

In the end a correlation was found between swimming and changing light bulbs on Sundays. You may want to look at the internet for the additional details that are actually amazing.

Really a strange discover I must admit.

So, then, we need a multiple swimming winner who is available on
Sundays to replace the bulb.......

Do I need to shutdown the power to change the light bulb in the water of my swimming pool? If I shutdown the other lights, the water will be dark, I can't see anything. What would be the best way to proceed? I mean any inconvenient to dim the other lights by using a big resistor before my electric meter? I'll use a diving suit indeed.
