    Hey john, I saw the story about the dragon being shut off when almost complete. Do all your sockets have switches? Is that a Europe thing?

    I live at the Jersey Shore in NJ. When our house was constructed every bedroom and our study/home office was given an outlet connected to a wall switch. I chose to use that switch for the BigBox cause on a number of occasions more so in the beginning I was having issues with the IR sensor not seeing the bed and it was attempting to put the glass thru the tip of the nozzle and the switch really came in handy.

    Just put two wires sticking through so whoever touches it gets zapped!

    Switched sockets are fairly common in the US, they make lamps and other room lightning easier.

    I have them too in every room and it drives me nuts, I was just curious why it was on a switch in the first place until he explained he uses it as an E-stop. I think I would shut off my printer every time i left the room not remembering which is the overhead light and which is the printer.
