What's all this millihertz stuff anyhow?

    Lately a lot of people don't get their capitals right. So many mHz are posted, sigh!
    Do we need a tutorial on units?:rolleyes:

    As a note on the side: In LTSPICE it doesn't matter whether you use uppercase or lowercase letters, 'm' is treated equal to 'M'. This can confuse the uninitiated because writing 3mOhm is the same as 3MOhm and is interpreted as 3 MilliOhm. In LTSPICE you have to use Meg for Mega, so 3 Megaohm = 3Meg.

    P.S. I hope nobody does mind my borrowing in the title from Bob Pease - may he rest in peace.

    When I grab a condenser marked in mfd to use, I am rarely concerned about megacycles as I re-form it.

    You wouldn't be concerned about milicycles either, would you? Nor would you come anywhere of thinking about MegaFarads :)
