    I just bought a multimeter that has a transistor test socket for hfe
    testing. My PNP transistors it says are 180 or so, and that sounds right,
    assuming it's some kind of 'gain' measurement. But all of NPN transistors
    it says have values of 1 or 2, or in case, 3. I'm sure I'm putting the
    right pins in the right holes, I still have the pinout diagrams that came
    with the transistors, so there's no mistake there, and the holes are clearly
    marked on the multimeter... When I check the NPN ones that the hfe tester
    says have an hfe value of 1 or 2, they all have normally biased junctions
    when tested with the old 'pretend its a diode' method. So I dont know what
    to make of this. Can anyone give me some advice on this?

    I see this is a serious issue for you --- would you like to explore this
    further?

    What's it like being a troll?

    The pinout diagram on the package the transistors came in turned out to be
    wrong --- the issue has been resolved.

    Why don't you find a newsgroup that is more suitable for you to express your
    gushy, emotional opinions about cartoons and nazis? Try
    alt.voip.opinions.gushy or somesuch.
    This group is for electronics.

    I know you're a stupid, annoying windbag --- but what am I? Nyeah nyeah!
    Isn't this fun? Betcha sooner rather than later you're gonna bail out and
    go watch some cartoons.

    Aaah, I knew you were some kind of undesirable, but I had no idea you were
    an informant, one with either multiple personalities or maybe a
    apeworm --- "So, what should we do? Rat him out ..." Go ahead, all one
    of you, if informing is your thing, then have at it, see how far you get.
    Oh, and if you had actually read my posts to that thread you would have seen
    that I was the one advising the OP about how illegal those 'phones' are, and
    I cited a recent case somewhere on the east coast where a chinese restaurant
    got a many-thousand dollar fine --- duh, what's it like John.
    Sorry I had to forgo posting to this thread for a few days, I had other
    things to do, but I'm back now. I find it hard to believe you're a
    professional circuit designer, John --- police informant, no problem,
    apoplectic and hysterical, absolutely. But professional circuit designer?
    Get out of town.
    Oh yeah, I do have a picture of the package of transistors showing the pins
    reversed, and I could post it, but I'm not going to because then it be like
    I need to prove something to you, which I don't. Even if I did post it you
    probably couldn't view it anyway because you probably use one of those
    dumbed-down HTTP interfaces to NNTP that don't permit binaries.

    Wrong again, on all points. You are the one who keeps replying to me, and
    who finds it impossible to stop replying. Remember how this started?
    Probably not. I'll refresh your memory. I posted a question about testing
    transistors and you responded with some kind of meaningless, irrelevant,
    'drop the skype name' nonsense. If you have no relevant, usefull
    information, why post at all?
    Also, like I said, if you had actually the read the scanner-group posts I
    made, I was the one telling the OP these devices are illegal, yet you are
    incapable of understanding that --- saying I must be insane because I'm
    illegally using my radio?!? Where does this illegal use of a radio
    accusation come from? Any idea? How can anyone be that blind to facts in
    front of their face?
    You must come from some kind of abusive environment where everyone calls
    everyone else stupid, I'm even getting sucked into your mindless, reflexive
    "you're stupid" vortex of dysfunctionality.
    Just out of curiosity, can you access binaries?

    I was trolling, hah, you're the one who started the ball rolling with a
    meaningless drive-by comment about skype. You consider an unsolicited
    drive-by relating to a means of reaching an OP as relevant --- wow.
    I find it revealing that you would assume that I find your posts to be
    threatening. Pathetic, yes. Unfortunate,. definitely --- but threatening?
    Why on earth would anyone find you or your feeble-minded drivel threatening?
    And why would 'control' even be a factor to begin with? Your personality
    structure becomes more sharply defined with each successive post --- clearly
    you not only come from some kind of abusive environment where you're called
    stupid, but control, or more precisely the lack thereof, is evident.
    Have a nice day, John.

    How many hours did you spend on this so far John --- how many hours spent
    sweating away with a thesaurus and dictionary? Hah! Not once has it taken
    more than, literally, a couple minutes for me to bang off a reply to your
    insipid, feeble-minded, ramblings.
    Your capacity for self deception is the only thing remarkable about you ---
    you have really managed to convince yourself that you're behaviour is
    appropriate and correct. This is a group for people to dicuss electronic
    related topics, not the nature of skype cartoons and how bad they are.
    Oooooh, thum thar skype cartoons they're like thum nazis. Hello? Is this
    alt.gushy.notnice.cartoonopinions ?
    There, can't be bothered doing any more than that. It's not even worth
    reading, I'm sure nobody will read it, and nobody will feel rushes of
    horrible nazi-skype-cartoon triggered emotions and then 'nobody' will spend
    the rest his evening exercising his capacity for self deception and speedy
    dictionary lookups --- have a nice evening Nobody.

    "Blow me" ? OK, let's go there --- I was thinking perhaps we could at least
    keep a semblance of maturity in this, however, that is clearly not to be. I
    kind of figured you for a homosexual as soon as you got all hot about those
    terrible, not-nice skype cartoons. "Tsk, tsk, they're like nazi's, it's so
    terrible --- oh please, get rid of them!". Not that there's anything wrong
    with being gay, but in your case, and only in your case, there is something
    wrong with it, and terribly wrong at that, but only because it's you, John.
    So, John, the little homosexual 'circuit designer' --- design any good
    circuits lately? Or have you been too busy seeking anonymous, gay sex
    encounters over the internet? Blow you? I'll BET you want me to blow
    you --- fag. That's gotta be your most moronic response yet, but there'll
    be more, and whichever way you turn, I'll beat you in that direction, too.
    You should try sex with women, if you can. But of course you can't,
    probably even if your life depended on it. I guess it has something to do
    with your relationship with your mother, the cheapest, train station whore
    that she is. Or maybe it was due to your experiences during that prison
    sentence you served, probably for stealing panties or some kind of
    disgusting sex offence --- and how you became a passive, raped prison bitch,
    you underwear-sniffing piece of pee-hole dandruff. Your mother was a whore
    for a pack of lice-ridden, flea-bitten, mangy mongrel dogs --- and you are
    the love child of the omega male mongrel dog and the dog-pack's whore.
    Furthermore, you were born premature and retarded, and spend all day sucking
    stinky dicks. Even normal, regular fags shun you because to have sex with
    you would be like throwing a wiener down a hallway.
    How does it feel to be always one-upped like this? You say, "blow me", and
    in return you get a half paragraph of the same, ridiculously infantile
    drivel, but more creative and original. I can even do infantile sex-drivel
    better than you, duh, blow me. What the **** is that? Brain dead mongoloid
    idiots can do better than that.
    You remind me of an abused animal who keeps coming back and licking the hand
    that is abusing it when you ask me to have sex with you, instead of, at the
    very least, coming back with any kind of decent insult, you child of a
    mangy, omega dog's whore!

    That would be the kind thing you choose to wonder about, wouldn't it?

  20. Uh, isn't there supposed to be some rule against using military force
    against citizens?

    Thanks,
