As we got here, the University of Plymouth has a process whereby they check all the electricity on everyone's computers. They just need your plug and the adapter you are using to plug into their plugs. They plug it into some machine that looks like an old cash register and/or a large volt meter and then numbers fly across the screen. Did I mention that two men are manning this process? So then they put a handwritten little sticker on the computer's electrical power adapter plug and the plug adapter. When I ask them what this does, they say it makes sure everyone's plugs are working. I have not had either of my computers tested because one is at the house and I haven't brought it in and my other one had the short 2-prong plug which didn't fit into their approved adapters because it was made for a 3-prong and was indented so the Apple plug didn't fit. I had to bring in the longer version of my plug that has the 3-prong end and by that time, the 2 men who test were gone.
Not that I think what they did really does ANYTHING but creates a job for 2 men.
Seriously, they do this for all their students? Or is it just because we are all from a bunch of different countries? But why then, do the computer companies make the plug transformers to accommodate 120-240 volt electricity? The issue has already been nipped in the bud.
