dont be surprised when you do then.
and i too think your speed is a bit unthoughtful, shortcuts are ok when you understand why, but gun ho! fk that im not dumb at best can fry alot of work or money
at worse it could catch fire, stuff happens
crack open the oldest clock radio you can find at the thrift store and you will probally see some fat nasty diodes + a "ton o junk" for a couple bucks
I just got one last week for 1.25$, had 4 chunky diodes as a rectifier, a TI clock chip and a 4 digit 2 inch 7 seven segment display
+ screws, switches, 120v to 5 v low amp transformer w ac plug and some radio junk
