Hello,

.......And, welcome.

Everyone is eligible for this forum: even me, and that's stretching a point a bit.

We only ask that you try to be polite, and, although it's true that no question is a stupid one; we do tend to break that first rule when people ask questions that could have been easily answered by typing the same text into google.

Welcome,

Join in. Talk a little technology. Have a little fun.

Don't be too abrasive but also don't be too thin skinned. We are all good guys/gals but every now and then our childhood "doesn't play well with others" starts to show. This is especially true when someone asks us to do their homework or asks us to do their job that they are totally unqualified for.

(I've been meaning to read those rules myself. I keep putting it off because I assume I break a few of them.)

WTG, Mr. Technical.

Welcome newcomers, all. The first challenge question for you:

1. What happens if loop A is 12 VDC (automotive battery) to common ground with 1-5 A current flow, then a parallel loop B is connected about halfway through the conductive media (stuff with with conductive stuff in it), and signal on electrode B is -60 V pulsed, capable of 10 A?

Second challenge question:

2. How do you fix you office chair when every time you raise it to correct height and be seated, the thing starts leaking air (from the cylinder, not your butt), and lowers you so that you are having to raise your head to see the computer screen?

#2. I have had this problem several times. I raised the seat to the height I wanted -then cut a piece of wood that matched the length of the cylinder and secured the wood to the cylinder with several wire ties. The chair is no longer adjustable and I don't have that sinking feeling.

Actually, Mr. Anonymous, I found a piece of Uni-strut laying around that was almost the perfect length, just a tad long, and used cable ties (zip ties) to hold it to the cylinder.

I found it before I read your response, and I thank you for answering challenge question #2, it affirms I found a useful cheap solution.

OK Newbie.. now this is the beauty of this forum, you have just witnessed in action the massive combined collective power of the forum's intellect, which is what we do and we fix the simplest of things, like office chairs.

I have had that sinking feeling for some time now, and look.. an instant fix to my problem!

Awesome!

and where are my manners.... PaulTaylor.. welcome to the mad house. If you stay prepared to be mocked, have your ideas poo-pooed, abused, be a lawyer, be a mediator, but above all be yourself and enjoy!

Its fun! ps.. but don't tell the rest of them I said that!

I also give you a GA, since I (1) I don't know either, and (2) would buy one if I was not the red-headed step child of my employer. Here I am "working" on Labor Day.

If you’re totally wacko you’ll fit in nicely, just don’t annoy the grumpy old sods while they’re asleep.

I am still working on my over unity device. But even that doesn't count if there are nuclear transmutations (that I am counting on for extra heat, we shall see when the calorimetry results are in).
