Re: "I Learned About XYZ From That"



I prefer the violet glow of RF power transistors (in oscillation and thermal
runaway) that you get while you're trying to measure the collector voltage
with a VOM.

Mistakes happen. I once had a UPS driver bring back a computer that we had
just shipped. The package was 1/2 its original height and had tire tread
marks across the top. He asked me "Do you think it still works?"
