That's a fantastic story. I'm only adding mine for fun now, since yours has mine beat by miles.

20 years ago I was playing with an auto-transformer circuit and a bistable vibrator with discrete parts on a breadboard - both powered from a couple of AA cells. Something distracted my one saturday morning so I tossed it all to one side.

A couple of weeks later when playing with it again, while watching music videos on the telly, I noticed that a band of interference appeared across the top 1/4 of the screen - timed perfectly with the flashing LED. Hmmmmmm!

The next day the fella across the road asked if we'd also had problems with TV reception for the last couple of weeks, saying he'd been unable to enjoy anything with all the interference.

I never did let on that it was me.. Blush | :O
