    Because I thought I"d get to see more photos of the great man in the sea. But have been greatly disappointed instead.

    Please post one of you in your padded bra, dress and high heels.

    Because I need to be reminded on a daily basis that there are people out there a lot smarter than me.

    I had been looking for a site like this for a while. Some sites, while electronics based, expect you to take their word and get offended if you want to know the details. This one doesn't. I also like the blogs, image hosting, and more.

    And yes, I use the information I gain here often.

    Between the simulators, synthesizers, place & route, code checkers, design rules checkers and all the other tools I use daily to do my job, I have gotten far away from basic electronics that I used to enjoy. Sites like this one bring that back to me.

    I don't remember how I got here. But I sure enjoy reading about the world through the words of all the regular members.

    I have to admit I like hearing about far away lands, my home is so mundane. :p

    I am a hobbyist and found this site while trying to design a circuit for a new application. I stayed and learned a lot from the community.

    Electronics was a hobby of mine since I was 6, but just recently I started working with electronics as a career. My first electronics forum was Electro-Tech-Online, but after a few months I decided I really wanted to try another site as well. I joined AAC and 4HV, but dropped 4HV after only a short period of time. I didn't care much for its layout, and the people tended to be less friendly. Over the next couple of months I really grew to enjoy being at AAC. The community is friendly and helpful, layout is clear and easy to use, and I've learned a lot. Just recently I made AAC my home forum, and here I am. I've made a lot of friends here and had a lot of fascinating conversations. I am proud to be a member here at AAC.

    I became a member to figure out how to modify my automobile into a perpetual motion machine that can: shoot projectiles with a rail gun, shock by-bystanders and then jam their phones so the cannot call for help. It was going to be powered by 15 lead acid batteries in series so i could simply rectify mains power and eliminate heavy transformers when charging. Once charged, a relay would trip and the AC would kick on a string of LEDs.

    When I have time and money to start this project, I will start asking questions.

    I was hoping to get a smiley from you, Bill. The idle threat is funnier. Thanks.

    I was searching for pictures of swimsuits girls(for a friend of course). But Google brought me here. The swimsuit picture was a big bummer. But the rest of the forum was kind of OK
