    For some reason my previous thread disappeared, without any notice/pm at all - so i guess it just disappeared by itself..
    The topic is covered in the volumes here at AAC, those supposed to introduce electronics to newcomers - i therefore believe that its okay to discuss this topic.

    The subject is covered by AAC itself: http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_3/chpt_3/12.html
    Another thread with same type of project: http://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/showthread.php?t=24177
    Im well aware of the danger of using 230V - no need to point it out again.

    Anyhow.. I plan to make some LED powered lamps, fed by 230V AC @ 50 Hz.
    First is a proof of concept:
    Designed to provide 10mA half-wave to each LED. Surge-current is limited to ~115mA.

    Any thougts?

    You were told that this subject violates forum rules. Your post just didn't disappear. I'm sure it was deleted by a mod because the topic violates the rules of the forum.

    Why do you insist on killing yourself when the nice folks here will help you accomplish what you want to do in a safe manner?
