Can we be done with the IP allow lists?

Each industry has it’s technical oddities. In financial services, a long standing one is an unholy addiction to CSV over some form of FTP.

The eternal water heater

Have an Eternal (GU100, GU145, GU195) Water Heater?

I have good and bad news The good news is that (apart from one key issue) this is a well designed Water Heater that, if looked after will last a long time. It’s primarily constructed from stainless steel and uses good quality components. The bad news is that Grand Hall, the company that made and sold these heaters in the US has gone bankrupt. (Apparently it’s a great heater for residential use but didn’t do well in commerical use)
