Funny, no one else tried this remedy.

Don't worry, no matter how long it takes there will be at least one second on the timer when you disconnect it.

I have the same thing

I know the click and it does not sound the same as the death bug or whatever its called. it sounds more like a loose metal latch when a truck goes past and shakes the house. Its weird, not that into it

I had the same thing going on when I bought my house 12 years ago. It was coming from a wall in the bedroom but I couldn't figure out what it. Also, I typically only heard when lying in bed at night when the house was quiet. One afternoon I laid down for a nap and sure enough it started again.. since it was daylight I decided to investigate.

I put my ear to the wall so I could pinpoint the source as best I could.. went outside to see if a branch was hitting the house or if there was an animal digging around the foundation. Turns out the noise was from the little wiry padlock they put on electrical meters. The wind was causing it to oscillate and hit the box with a constant tick, tick, tick.

I keep wondering what the meter reader thinks when he checks the meter and see's the lock covered in foam padding and duct tape.

I heard a ticking sound in my house for years, it was the house settling. The basement walls were slowly bowing in and the house was constantly shifting. That was not a cheap fix.

Older (or cheaper new) mechanical lamp timers start doing this after a while. I had some Intermatic rom the early 1990s that I finally had to retire because of the annoying ticking sound (about 4 per second). I tried to take one apart to see what was causing it and how they're geared, but all the plastic bits just broke and the thing pretty well disintegrated.

I find the following prose better and more fun to read than many modern novels and most political blogs. It reminds me of Hunter S. Thompson when he was experimenting with his dosages.

Googling, I see that Mr Mooo published this nowhere else; it was written exclusively for SDMB.

Yet you Dopers were rude to Mr Mooo. He has not been back: this was his very first post here and also his last one. I hope the lunatics didn't get him with their x-rays. He did write "I truly love people (because I am one for now)." For his sake, I hope he's still people, or has gone back to a better condition.

I just read it too. Wow. Too bad he did it in a wall of text, which people usually skip - on the other hand it kind of belongs in a wall of text.

Makes me wonder, though, how someone found the particular post, expended significant effort on writing the long post in reply pouring out concepts and ideas that seem very heartfelt, then disappeared.

People are strange. Especially those who are only people "for now".
