    Default Meter reading time again



    Its that time again so can I ask for a reading please?

    The last bill says the reading was 39569, so IF this is ??? 41770 ????, I have used some 2201 units this quarter which I think sounds about right.

    Sorry Gordon,
    You've only give the thumbnail and no way to get the direct image.
    Impossible to enlarge and enhance to make it readable.

    G'Day Gordon,
    when you upload, panel on right shows 'links to share'. Drop down menu, among others, shows ' Direct Link '. Highlight that, copy (Ctrl C), then paste in your post (Ctrl V).
    You need to wrap that in [img]your Direct Link[/img]

    That should give an image with more pixels that can be enhanced and enlarged.
    Before uploading your image, make sure that it is less than 700 pixels wide, otherwise it's a pain having to scroll L/R.

    Was the pic taken on a mobile phone ?

    it has small dimensions...

    or is this just because it is put in the forum (from imageshack) as a Thumbnail ?

    if so, maybe try another option in imageshack .... that will display it bigger

    cheers

    Try this link, I have edited the pic to just show the dials which I should have done in the first place.
    Its a bit fuzzy but I think the pointers can be clearly seen at the relevant numbers of the dial.

    You could have used MSPaint to reduce size before upload, however that is quite readable.

    B4life, I like your reading much better than mine.

    40670 minus 39569 = 1101, correct??

    Even if your low and I am high, its close so now to see what they say when the meter is read during May.

    Based on those numbers and the charges rounded UP to cater for an increase I came up with a figure around $300 for the Quarter.
    With a Gas stove and Hot water, a woodburner for heat and that works out roughly to around $1200 for the year broken down to a $100 a month down to $25 a week.
    Thats over $3 a Day for electricity.......................
