Well, Harry sent me the errata sheets and there's about 4 or 5 A4 sheets worth I'd corrections. Most are to do with punctuation, usage of SI symbols, it's vs. its; there were quite a few typos as well. Ill post up the errata tomorrow when I am at my computer - seems I cannot get it work on my iPad.

Let take this opportunity to thank Harry for going through the document and highlighting the problem areas.

Actually that's something I was pleased to see you had got correct.

For those that don't know what we're talking about, it's Andrew's excellent write-up of his latest amp, the e-amp. Check out his website!

For those who want to write as they speak, the correct spelling of "should of" is actually "should've" - but this is rarely used and such people would probably put the apostrophe in the wrong place anyway!

One assumes you prefer the US spellings? If you're a British-English speaker/writer but you suspect the majority of your readers will be American, should you use their spellings and words (faucet/tap sidewalk/pavement etc.)?

Using quite instead of quiet always crops up a lot.

And adding the word "like" as in "there is like 7 volts on the emitter".

Alternative rendering of Mooly: "the emitter was so 7 volts!".
