Yeah thats my problem right now, that and getting the heat out of the room. I bought long fat extensions so I can run more power to the office, however even then the heat becomes intolerable if you're really loading both rigs. Oh and my electricity is now 39cents/kwh so AC is not an acceptable solution to that lol.

Our lighting rings have more ampage on the breaker than the US main ring
A lot of commercial lighting uses 270V. I've been hit by that too and there's quite a difference compared to the gentle tickle of 120V. The other down side is that you guys have to put a fuse in your plug because your breaker isn't going to stop you from hurting/dying. We rarely have that which means smaller more compact plugs. The upside is that your kettles boil a lot faster because the power rating can be higher. Oh and 2% more efficiency.
Yeah,13 amp fuses in the plugs are the norm here..
I have been known to go ghetto and wrap fuses in tinfoil to stop them blowing...rather than,you know,fixing it.....
A cool thing you can do in the UK is take flouro tubes,stick one end into the ground under a hi ten cable and watch it light up with no power input nor anything touching the tube.
