Really quick, just like the query that works in my email.

"Take care that thou useth the proper method when thou taketh the measure of
 high-voltage circuits so that thou doth not incinerate both thee and the
 meter; for verily, though thou has no account number and can be easily
 replaced, the meter doth have one, and as a consequence, bringeth much woe
 upon the Supply Department."   -- The Ten Commandments of Electronics
