    Heard about that on the news. My oven was off by six minutes. But yeah, this also means wide ranging power outages are rare, because spikes and power station outages can be met by neighboring countries, which will have their neighbors balance that and so on, until someone just activates some reserves (like Norwegians using hydro power for spikes, or someone putting in a rod more into their nuclear reactor).

    powergrids are fascinating things all round, hence why i plan to study high-voltage electrical systems come this summer. ^.^

    did you know Denmark is the only country in europe where the frequency is not synced across the country ? half the country sits in the Central European Grid, the other half on the Scandinavian grid meaning transfer of power back and forth happen by DC across Storebælt.

    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    >studying high voltage systems

    You really are a massive autist.

    AC fags get fucked.

    Can someone explain to me how, in an era where quartz clocks have been around for decades, an appliance's time can be affected by the AC frequency?

    Most appliance clocks use the electricity cycle as their atomic counter. So 216000 cycles an hour at 60hz. If the supply only delivers say, 215000 cycles in an hour, you clock drifts back by that amount.

    And if I am not mistaken a quartz time piece uses electricity to cause the crystal to vibrate anyway.

    My grandfather's clock is powered by gravity and it drifts by 5 min every week.

    Which European country messes up the gravitational constant?

    I'm curious if it's affecting things like old card punch clocks in factories, I have to assume there are still places using things like that. Or industrial machinery with processes timed from that.

    Lol yeah, and?

    It'll still always oscillate at the same base frequency. It's the entire point of having it.

    Process machinery has its own timers.

    You wouldn't run AC through a quartz crystal anyway would you?? (I genuinely don't know)

    Guess this goes into EU politics.

    Funny court decision in Romania:

    In a case reminiscent of a Kafka novel, a Romanian court has ruled that a 63-year-old man is dead despite what would appear to be convincing evidence to the contrary: the man himself appearing alive and well in court.

    Constantin Reliu asked the court in the town of Barlad to overturn a death certificate obtained by his wife after he had spent more than a decade in Turkey, during which time he was out of contact with his family. The court told him he was too late, and would have to remain officially deceased.
