  ELECTROCUTION COMMENT

  Sorry to hear about the fatal electrical accident (CGC #456).

  13KV requires various safety procedures such as hot-sticks
and two people.  I would have hoped he used a hot-stick like the
electrical utility people do.  13KV will jump out at you where
480, while dangerous, won't.

  THERE IS AN UNDERSCORE ("_") IN CGC'S NEW WEB ADDRESS

  One CGC Communicator reader thought that there was a
blank space in our new web address, but the mystery character
is indeed an underscore:

  http://www.bext.com/_CGC/ 

  An underscore is mandatory; the software leaves us no choice.

  CGC thanks Bext for continuing to provide web space for the
Communicator!
