    Some do, more don't. Now catfish is a real dung eater. Don't trust me,
    check it out for your self.

    edge speed ??? you mean harmonics ??

    The obvious question is why would you bother?
    The faster waveform rise time means that the higher harmonics of the
    fundamental remain significant. In the limit that the waveform becomes a
    delta function like spike then all harmonics are present with equal
    weight. A real narrow pulse has finite width. I presume this is a device
    designed to destroy MOSFETs and CFLs in roughly equal numbers!!!

    BTW be careful if you end up flashing bright lights at frequencies in
    the 5 to 15 Hz range as if you are even slightly prone to epilepsy at
    the wrong frequency you could end up on the floor twitching in a fit.

    What do they feed those? Sure it ain't made from chicken droppings?

    Not perfectly, but yes. The fast edges mean lots of high order harmonics.
    To help with the idea 1 microsecond edges mean plenty of 1 MHz range
    content, likewise 1 nanosecond edges mean plenty of 1 GHz range content.

    Hmm. Make that omnivores, the eat grain as well as worms, grubs and
    insects when they get feral.

    I find it difficult to read by that light.
    Yes, it reminded me of my 7th grade English class,

    I got the impression that the core was a little bit jumpy!

  10. How about solution-oriented newsgroups? Eg.


    Problems should be posted in an appropriate group for that solution.

    Then we'd need another group

    Mike doesn't realise that this is actually an alias of

    set up for mutual admiration sessions between him and Jim.
