No, thank the various gods.

Your ears were probably burning, as were Brian's.

Mr. Jones has returned the favor. After an afternoon in my lab, I now have one less Adcom power amplifier after his demonstration of how to measure leakage inductance.

Maybe you two should stick to writing books and articles and keep well away from hardware, especially when your throats are well lubricated!

We each have the bad habit of only wanting to write about things where we actually have data. Of course, our data from yesterday are comprised mostly of the aftermath of showers of sparks, followed by smoke, followed by silence.

At least it wasn't a diy creation that went up in smoke are you also missing a few bottles of red?

Looks like everyone in this bandwagon does send things up in smoke once in a while.....no matter how careful they are.

I'll never forget testing a new power amp circuit in our living room. It sounded quite nice and after a few minutes I went out to get a drink. I hastened back when I heard my mother frantically yelling that the amp was on fire ! It was !
Several resistors caught fire and there was a large amount of smoke . Mom couldn't understand why I took it so cool !

Hmmm... and I was considering offering to have you visit here... after that story I am not sure I can stand the financial 'hit'!!

But seriously, can you expect us to actually *believe* this very tall tale based only upon an image of some bottles on the floor of some unknown room? We want to *see* the evidence for ourselves!!



signed,

skeptical in NY

PS. are you sure you met with the proper "Mr. Jones"?? And maybe you were drunk and it was actually London, Ontario, Canada??
