    And yet, you are posting in the Automotive forum? Check out the new ToS (it's the link in the bottom right of the page). The restriction has been removed.

    There was some discussion recently, announcing that this would be the case, but it was premature.

    Personally, I would have liked an announcement that new Terms of Service had been published.

    I take it you don't visit the OT/feedback fora much? ;):D

    It doesn't matter where one visits ... a simple announcement would have been nice.

    I thought the existence of a new subforum and the related sticky would be adequate.

    Would you like a temporary sticky in the usual subfora?

    I don't find the OT forum that interesting I'm here to learn about electronics.

    No silly... Everyone know LEDs run best off 480v ac. It shines a whole new light on everything.

    OT = Off Topic
    Geeze, HP. It took me almost a minute to locate your frame of reference, and I LIVE HERE! :eek:
    You use so many unusual words and references that I cast a very wide net to catch your meaning.
    I think I need a nap. :(

    I shouldn't have thought 'OT' was particularly abstruse?:confused: --- That said 'SMS-talk' fairly drives me up the wall on principal alone!:mad::eek:

    Well... Since we're rocking the boat -- It occurs to me that batteries qualify as transformerless PSUs ;):D

    The problem lies in the idea that I expect abstruse verbiage from you. When you state the obvious, I fall off the turnip truck. :D
