The phones here in our Kampala office were acting a bit strange when a call came in so I went to the communications room to check it out. Everything seemed in order so I took the cover off of the wall-mounted system. A number of geckos, maybe 5 or 6, came running out, one at least 4 or more inches long! I check the system and it seemed okay. I tested it by using my mobile phone and everything was alright now.
So, maybe it isn't the famous story about a moth and a vacuum tube, but its still interesting what we have to account for here.
