Actually, what I was most interested in finding is how electricity flows in a wire. I still don't know much.
Ahh, bring up the soundtrack "Kid Charlemagne" which I just heard online the other night. Love that tune, but my favorite from that album is "Don't Take Me Alive", which for my money has the most kickass beginning and subsequent guitar solo in practically all of rock and roll

I also wanted to raise the issue of EE "ethics'", if such thing exists. What drives those people who patent obvious topologies?
$$$ and only $$$?
Funnily, if that topology is US Patent #5,155,449
then what shall we say about this publication in AE 6/99?

Best,

Well, I think many times it's just naivete and failure on the part of the patent attorneys to do an adequate prior art search. Except for outfits like Bos%, who are simply VENAL, bullies, disgraceful.

That B company licensed the use of some of their patents to a headphone company recently. The company improved on the patents. Made headphones.

B company SUED them. And they were lying, prevaricating (sorry redundant I just had to use "prevaricate" ) in court, and suddenly produced as if by magic a lot of "documents". They did lose the case (Hooray!).

I have to say it is refreshing and rather amazing that a fair number of us not only took 'cid and presumably other 'delics, but are now willing to admit it!

John C., someday I will have to tell you my story of staying a couple days at a certain inn in Boulder Creek, circa 1969, on my way back down from UC Berkeley, having attended the All-UC Intercampus Festival of the Arts. It didn't ease tensions that my friend J. Gardecki and I were driving a university vehicle with official license plates But I was able to persuade Larry and Jim that we were bona fide, primarily by disclosing secret information. Also I had just gotten a haircut, at the request of a couple for their wedding. Pretty silly pretense!

But I had a wonderful time, and felt at peace for the first time in years.

So that must be in Valley and Wallman?

Haven't found it in Valley and Wallman as yet, but did run across this in a search: http://deepblue.lib.umich.edu/bitstr...31-9-979-1.pdf

Except for a predominant fixation on the second chakra, I think it improved everything Although pinworms and head lice were less than cool (borrowed from Tom Wolfe).

tvr, I gave you all the information that you need to buy on Amazon the 1970 Motorola 'Semiconductor Data Book'. I gave you price and there is a lot of availability for the LONG FORM version that I recommended to you. $2.00 is the going price. What is the problem?

Anyone care to comment?
White used tubes.
