Flood defences failed because flood sensors were waterlogged due to heavy rain!

Now I would have thought that designers might have taken a damp operating environment into account when designing a flood sensor.

They obviously learned their engineering in a different college to me!

It's just that some of the members are perfect, pity I can't include myself.

I've had enough of this childish sniping, and of people desperately trying to claim that they didn't really say what is right there, in print.

morddwyd has admitted jumping to a conclusion, and good for him - it's something that every one of us has done at some point, and there's no shame in it.

With regret, and apologies to morddwyd, I'm locking the thread before somebody posts yet another snide remark about another forum user.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
