Just a comment on the bleeder thread... er... string

   I employ a series-parallel configuration in my amplifier power supply.
 The individual resistors are run at about 25% of their ratings.   In the
unlikely event that one of the resistors  operated so conservatively
should fail (open), the second string will still provide a safety bleed.

   Also, in my particular application, wherein I source my screen supply
from the low end of the bleed, a failure would be indicated by a screen
regulation fault.
