    ^^^^^^^^^^^^ that looks real good ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    i bet there are schools that don't even offer electronics as an elective
    or whatever they called it in HS. like the HS attended by a girl i once
    met. i was going to say "spoke with" or some such statement *without* a
    preposition on the end, but you can't speak *with* a moron. you can only
    speak *to* them and then it's usually a waste of breath.

    the teachers at that school don't even care anymore because the students
    don't want to learn and the parents either don't care or can't bust
    their asses. the girl asked me why i "always" use "big" words. the word
    that tripped her trigger was "integrity". that really blew me away.

    "do he have to go to da liberry?" no, not the same girl. oh! a neighbor
    kid whose mother wouldn't correct his grammar because they'd do it when
    he went to school. "her can't have that." "her" being his sister. some

    thanks John, Really guys no one is here to trample on any one else or maybe
    if you are then I am in the wrong newsgroup. I actually came here to learn
    from professionals, not play chat games with children. For those of you,
    that have attained a great wealth of electronic information, please the me
    the honor and remember how you got there! If you were born in this world
    already knowing, then why are you in the sci.electronics.basics newsgroup, I
    dont mean to be rude, but please act as professionals and show everyone some
    respect! I for one am here to learn and endeavor upon the attributes of
    pioneering electronic professionals. Thank you for all your expertise

    Fred, my friend who are you upset with and why are you always calling people
    morons? Is life nothing more than a big joke to you? Or would you prefer
    to chat with children that have time to play childish games. That was
    uncalled for and you know it . Please remember that this is the basics
    newsgroup, the advance section is in Malibu!

    I remember writing to this group that one of the few reasons to top post was
    to say that you consider the whole thread to be a pile of old monkey dung.

    Here we go again, the children are squabbling and calling each other names.

    You people are supposed to be engineers or aspirant engineers and this group
    is supposed to help those new to electronics to learn from those who have
    knowledge of the subject. Reading through this thread, where I can without
    becoming nauseated by the petty bickering, I am amazed at the wasted effort
    that you're all willing to spend on a subject which has nothing to do with
    the purposes of the group. Your behaviour of some of you would get you
    fired from any serious engineering company.

    You are perfectly well aware of who you are and what you are doing. It's
    probably not going to change your behaviour, but let it be known that your
    behaviour is an insult to electronics and engineering in general.

    To put it into words that even the children among you will understand the
    answer to "The proper way to post to a group" is "Politely". Apart from
    that, does anyone really care?

    Most of us are actually in SED and too lazy to delete the basics
    address- that newsgroup is nearly defunct. As for professionalism and
    politeness, this usually means assuming certain standards of behavior in
    a cooperative effort focussed on some sort of production, it does not
    mean all-around wimpy-nice person with infinite tolerance for sociopaths
    and idiots. I'm fairly certain you're a poser. Why don't you describe
    some of the prerequisite coursework you have completed?

    If you're here to learn, then ask questions instead of issuing

    I, for one, could care less about what your criteria might be regarding
    professionalism and respect. If you have a question, ask it politely
    and if/when you get your answer, thank whoever helped you out. Remember
    that no one here owes you anything, is not bound by your rules and that
    you're not calling the shots and you'll help to make this a more
    peaceful place.

    On the other hand, if you want to play, go for it!

    If you snip the whole thing, you just made yet another stupid usenet

    John -

    I'm astounded that so many otherwise intelligent people would let
    themselves get sucked into the trap of responding to Dark Matter the
    Insignificant. I fell for his b.s. once but hopefully, never again...but
    then again, I try never to say never! ;-)

    there are just a few crabby types here who seem to be perpetually
    angry at the world. Just ignore them; they must have their own reasons
    for being bitter.

    But seriously, it's hard to get the basics of electronics off the web,
    and impossible from a newsgroup. Read some physics (the
    electromagnetics part, just the basics) and an introductory "circuits
    and systems" EE text, then *work some problems* and build a few
    *simple* DC circuits, with emphasis on understanding the voltage and
    current flows, both instinctively and numerically. Ask questions here
    if you get stuck on a concept.

    Win's book, Art of Electronics, is a good read, if you follow the
    introductory stuff carefully (he goes pretty fast!)

    Where will you be going to school?

    As John Larkin has said:
    Combine these 2 concepts
    and seek out a magazine with an interesting project
    or a website which has a COMPLETE how-to for building a device.
    Gather the components (an important portion of the learning process),
    build it, and see if it works.

    John's correct again when he says:
    [After doing some legwork yourself]
    We don't mind helping,
    but there are times when it feels like babysitting.

    Maybe nobody got it except Alanis. There's a certain irony about a song
    Maybe she's the one who came up with the name for
    GNU (GNU's Not UNIX) or
    PHP (PHP Hypertext Preprossor)

    Gotta love those recursive abbreviations.

    More proof that you have no clue about usenet.
  15. SHAUN

    SHAUN Guest

    to learn EE, but first I will try my best to embark on the "legwork" that
    you guys speak of! But isn't that stuff, like real expensive to purchase or
    must I do the legwork to find out if it is, either way whatever I have to
    do to learn this I will! Again thank you for your support

    only taking computer and telecommunication courses, next semester I will be
    in DC and AC courses, along with digital fundamentals.

    again thank you John

    AMEN, AMEN, AMEN, Thank you, thank you is all that I can say John

    Well, I happen to be reading it in the *.design group. Hmmm (looks at
    headers), the silly thing is x-posted all over usenet.

    - YD.

    Right again...or why would I possibly waste time responding to you?

    It's amazing...everwhere DarkManure shows up he uses the same
    rhetoric....not very original from where I stand...
    But's a tune I composed for him....

    Sing this to "The Beverly Hillbillies Theme"..
    Grab a banjo and sing along DarkMatter!

    There once was a Tard Boy and his name was DarkMatter..
    He wore a rubber helmet and posted round in here..
    And then one day he was being pretty rude..
    Then the newsgroups told him to "get a life dude"!...
    Troll that is, skippy whipper, pencil neck geek!

    The first thing you know he says he's an engineer..
    His folks finally said "move away from here".
    So he loaded up his helmet and his new set of knee pads.
    And flew to San Diego where he became frustrated..
    Rubber helmet, knee pads, ball gag!

    And now it's time to say goodbye to Tard Boy and his fits.
    This tube steak parasite will have to finally give it up..
    He's whinin' bout top postin' cuz' he "does not have a life"...
    If he'd drop his little skippy, he just might find a wife..

    Shot to the Head!
    Noose round' the neck!
    Whatever it takes!
    You all go away now Tard Boy, ya hear?
