I just got a post card saying I am in a class action lawsuit:
http://www.capacitorsindirectcase.com/

If You Bought an Electrolytic or Film Capacitor Directly From Certain Distributors Since 2002, You Could Get Money From Settlements Totaling Approximately $15 Million I figure that I bought, at most,$10 worth of caps. Lets see if the lawyers get 1/4 of $10 and I get the rest I fugure that I can retire in luxury. #### killivolt Joined Jan 10, 2010 791 I just got a post card saying I am in a class action lawsuit: http://www.capacitorsindirectcase.com/ If You Bought an Electrolytic or Film Capacitor Directly From Certain Distributors Since 2002, You Could Get Money From Settlements Totaling Approximately$15 Million

Me too, but what I thought I seen was if you don't contact them it's a minimum of $300 to$400 in the settlement and that you have to opt out to not be charged.

But, I didn't really proof it. Thats just what I got out of it.

But$7.5M each isn't too bad is it?

What a typical legalistic load of male cow poo.So they "conspired" to sell capacitors at a certain price. Who noticed! Why don't they go after real conspirators like oil companies and banks who really conspire to fix prices and screw us over.

Where in the world is gas more than $400 a gallon? "If gas had ONLY kept up with inflation and nothing more, it would now cost$410.6/gal."

Sorry (again)... I thought that it was self-explanatory. What was said was gas was $138.9/gal. What should have been said was gas was$1.389/gal. You non-US citizens might not have understood the placement of the decimal point.

So what is 3.437.128 + 13.5.86 ?

A double decimal point is meaningless.

While unconventional, 2.99 9/10 is actually consistent with a positional numbering system.

a.bcd = (a·10^0) + (b·10^-1) + (c·10^-2) + (d·10^-3)

The decimal point is there to indicate which place has a weight with a zero exponent. If there are two decimal points, then there is no way to tell.

In this case:

a = 2
b = 9
c = 9
d = 9/10

Getting back to the topic. I don't know about Richard but when I collect my $7.5M for buying a couple of capacitors, I will be throwing a big party at my house. Everyone at AAC is invited. I suggest you start booking your plane tickets now to avoid the rush. #### WBahn Joined Mar 31, 2012 26,398 Getting back to the topic.
