LOL, does Kiwi know how you feel? ROTFL

I swear, EE's first class in college is "Intro to Life Science and why they aren't really scientists". My father in law is a retired US Navy R&D EE, and I get the same jokes from him. He like to joke with me how biologists are biologists because they are only good at memorization. Engineering is a thinkin' man's profession. So I tell him without me, he wouldn't know what genus and species of bird his widget just killed. Haha, good times.

Fortunately for me, he helps me quite a bit in the area of circuits.

Yeah, I saw that, but it still gave me what I needed to get started (in reverse).

I gotta borrow an oscilloscope from the lab downstairs and get on that. It helps I work with a bunch of engineers, but they are mostly structural, chemical and environmental. I'll say one thing about engineers, they have the best toys!
