    Maybe you could re-finance your house and get a new keyboard.

    I'm not the least bit "red faced", nor pissed (american or british

    I am not embarassed either...

    So what exactly were you trying to say?

    Hey Dark,

    My spelling mistakes are mine alone. I don't need some damn machine
    to bless my posts.

    I've yet to see a spell checker that can help with what I see
    as the most common usenet spelling/usage/typo mistakes:

    loose instead of lose
    it's instead of its
    misuse of their, they're, there, too, to, two...
    effect vs affect
    typos like: "what is you problem?"
    stoopid vs. stupid (possibly a regional spelling difference)

    But seriously, anyone with a functioning brain should be able
    to get past a few spelling errors without losing the idea being
    conveyed.... And should be able to resist the urge to rap the
    knuckles of the occasional offender.

    Some of your non sequitur stream of unconsciousness posts are a
    more than a little bit trying too...[obligatory usenet ;-)]

    As to your comment about cops and doughnuts: This isn't my job!
    Pay me to post, and I will post something that is worth paying for.
    Otherwise my posts are freebies that I choose to share.

    The inrush of current is caused by the filter capacitors being
    charged from zero volts to their operating value.

    Crap, you going to start that war again?

    Wow. It took you two posts and twenty lines before you realized my one (1)
    error. Heh.

    Uhhh... Leave them the **** alone, because they didn't do anything.

    Likely, it was me. Duh.

    No. Modern slang.

    That is what I said, you top posting dork. See now how your top
    post has messed up the flow of this sub-thread? NOW, you have to look
    DOWN below my response to see that I said "those rail caps take it
    full bore for some time..."

    What part of "that is inrush" do you not understand?

    I didn't need the primer, and if you intent to inform ALL of usenet,
    your response shouldn't have been some passing comment at the top of
    what YOU call a reply. If your intent is to inform ALL of Usenet,
    your reply SHOULD appear UNDER what you are replying to!

    THAT WAY, you have instructed, not merely made a peanut gallery

    You said that the last time, RETARD BOY!

    Your lame ass needs to fire up those three brain cells and actually
    do it!

    Actually, just take a leap off of a tall bridge. That will cure any
    retarded twit problems, and you certainly have some...

    Maybe you could provide more to these groups than peanut gallery

    Maybe, although it's not my job to fix your mind. I thought the fat
    bytestard loved peanuts?

    Man, it's been too many years since those classes! At first
    blush, it does look like the current increases linearly,
    but that's just because you're looking at a small portion
    of that e^-t time constant graph, right?

    And I should be chastized for missing that misspelling.
    Shame on me! :)

    I've more or less solved the bottom-feede^H^H^H^H^Hposter problem. If I
    see any kind of new information in the first screen, such that it's just a
    repeat of what's gone before, with its little pyramids of angle brackets ad
    nauseam, I just skip it and move on.

    Saves wear and tear on the killfile, too. ;-)

    Current rises linearly in a *perfect* inductor when you apply
    a constant voltage source.

  20. In Rich Grise typed:
    No, it's just that I was thinking of series circuits (with almost
    anything in series with the inductor) and I misread the part where a
    constant voltage source was specified.

    Yeah! tsk...tsk
