An RCD is a little thingie usually found in the cupboard under the stairs or somewhere in a dark cellar. RCDs were originally thought to be a mechanism for protecting electrical circuits and their is some evidence that they do do this to some extent. Their primary task, however, is to monitor computer activity. The are programmed to wait until a considerable amount of complex work has been done but not saved whereupon they disconnect the electricity supply.

It is rumoured that the media industry is developing a model that will also monitor TV programmes and disconnect the current five minutes before the end of any particularly tense adventure or detective film. This, they believe, will provide a great boost to DVD sales.
