    Well it seems my theory is looking a little shaky as the alarm came up this time at midnight on 30th August so not a perfect number of months or even a nice round number of days this time, but at...

    If you were wanting to 'fake' a good stable voltage then a forward biassed silicon diode (with a series resistor) should provide a constant voltage in the desired range. Not that I'm suggesting...

    Be careful when taking pictures over there - I heard they get a bit upset by visitors with cameras.
