  1. Hello, My name is Ben, and I am an electronics student(1st year)
    I was lurking at this news group and was wondering if it would be okay to
    post electronics questions I have? Most are simple things like TTLs and
    suck.
    Thank you all for your time!:)

    I'm sorry, I'm afraid you'll have to find another NG for those suck
    questions.

  3. Well, the trick is to understand the questions enough to at least
    be able to rewrite them so they don't look like someone's homework.
    It is so obviously homework when there is a string of questions,
    usually numbered, that don't have a lot of relevance to each other.
    For that matter, they aren't prefaced by the real world; "I was
    reading a book about computers, and I still can't see how ICs would
    be useful, or even why they have to be digital", or "I'm building
    a power supply, the book says to use specific types of capacitors
    on the regulator, and I can't grasp why?".

    Hi, Ben,

    Sure, just don't post obvious homework questions or people are liable
    to get sardonic.

    You use caps and punctuation, which is more than most students can
    manage!

  5. Thanks all! I have no problem with trying to teach myself, so won't use the
    NG as a "freebie" board, but only when I am truly stumped. I see I already
    started off on the wrong foot with that typo error, lol.
    Anyway, another thanks, and you'll all see stuff from me put up time to
    time.:)

    ...only when I am truly stumped

    As Red Green says, "we're all in this together",

    and as Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor says, "If you can't fix it--duck it".

    Too true! Just don't expect everyone to agree on the answers all the time!
