That's a good one.. I saw the breaker.. it's holding the floor of the pdp..
But what I'm wordering is what the power consumption is (at 220V) in ampere,
because I will be feeding it from an normal home-socket (line/null/mass) at
+/- 230Volt 10 Ampere.

Well.. I didn't get the test plugs.. but that's OK.. I'll nuke them myself 8*)
And as of the power controller cables.. How much does it cost to send from
your house (where do you live anyway?) to The Netherlands (I live near Utrecht
(about the center of NL))
