Too many buttons on that box.

That's who I thought, but Steve is not an uncommon name. I knew it wasn't me, I don't have a web site.

Guys,

Let us look at this in perspective. Anyone ever have some one try to kill them? I don't just mean being in harm's way, but knowing you were a target for specific reasons.

So unless there is a reason to take it to that level we could try to keep it friendly.

Now My OPINION is that you can see someones personality not just face to face, not even just from these kinds of contacts, but even from things as arcane as how they build a product.

Now one of my young apprentices every so often when he goes out in the field and meets someone new is every so often told he is lucky to work for a guy who is so nice. So it is possible to fool people. I suggest that a few more of you might want to present that face... otherwise I might let you experience what was mentioned here first.

A little extreme, in fact the personal attacks have diminished considerably. On the cable, I think Ken's words were "So much for Lenz, so much for reactance". Well it would be hard to measure the L and C of a cable with only one of the conductors. Two plastic tubes with liquid metal will have an L, R, and C just like any other cable. You can compute the rate of fall of the magnet in the tube from the physical properties and dimensions of the tube and magnet.

BTW my wife walked into a gunfight in Texas back in the 70's.
