    Question regarding cap values

    Even if I did, I wouldn't be able to measure it accurately as my multimeter doesn't have a capacitance setting. The one that's really tripping me up is the "1μ0M;" I'm curious what the significance is of putting the micro symbol between the numbers. On a resistor 2M2 is 2.2 meg, but that...

    Have you ever had this experience..

    How's your boss?

    I have to say, my boss is pretty cool and understanding, especially considering the meat grinder that the last year has been. I had a whole series of things that piled up on me around September-October that really did impact my work performance negatively, left me feeling completely depressed...

    Ever ruin something while trying to fix it?

    Murphy's Law #1,334,546: If it doesn't fit, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway. Corollary: instructions are for losers.
