    Here is a challenge for all you techs out there. I don't know if any of you already found this site...

    http://www.talkingelectronics.com/te_interactive_index.html

    scroll down until you see a little maze. Under that maze is a youtube video link. Under that is a hyperlink for "spot the mistake"

    Enjoy

    This should be in "Off-Topic", but I assume it'll be moved there...

    I agree with thatoneguy.

    The "spot the mistakes" guy got booted out of here quite a while back. He was here to nitpick and pointlessly argue, not contribute; the few contributions he made were awful.

    I noticed he likes to sharpshoot circitstoday.com and electronics for you schematics. My apologies for opening an old wound.

    Reading is not his strong suite, much like some tabloids. Some of my stuff wound up there. Of course, if he bothered reading it would have had some context, but that wasn't what he was after. He ended up banned several times (as he came back under a new name).

    If you want to meet him he is Collin55 at ElectroTech. I notice he gets banned there occasionally, but since that is his other home I suspect he behaves better in the long run.

    Nitpicking works both ways.

    It seems that he is too busy spotting others' mistakes and perhaps missed a few of his own.

    If you were really nitpicking, you would have mentioned the jump over (non-connection) and the missing connection dots everywhere on the drawing as old school, and is not congruent with contemporary drawings.

    And the headlines do not agree with the words .... as the words state 0-12V @ 700 mA with a 1 amp transformer or 0-12V @ 1.4 amp with a two amp transformer.

    It probably can supply 2 amps for a while - until the secondary coils burn out because there is no fuse.

    He didn't draw it, but I assume he has two 1N4002 diodes in parallel with each other. I suppose each is supposed to carry an amp each under full load. Now that is a good design practice.

    That or he has 8 separate diode bridges.

    He may not have drawn it, but he certainly nitpicks the others, yet holds himself to a lower standard.

    The ol' "do as I say, not as I do."
