More succinct than "ampatiousness", I suppose.

Well here's the trick... when you paste a url in, select it and apply the "Insert Hyperlink" button but then edit the line as shown below... I've put curlies in instead of the square brackets so it doesn't activate:

1. Paste....

http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/HomePage

2. Select and apply "Insert Hyperlink" (curlies are really square):

{url}http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/HomePage{/url}

3. Then edit your text in... shown blue below: note the = sign replaces first closing bracket and the url is followed by the replacement closing bracket... your text goes after that:

{url=http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/HomePage}display text goes here{/url}

Thusly....

Blah blah blah blah blah blah

No need for curlies:

1. Paste....

http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/HomePage

2. Select and apply "Insert Hyperlink"

[url]http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/HomePage[url]

3. Then edit your text in... shown blue below: note the = sign replaces first closing bracket and the url is followed by the replacement closing bracket... your text goes after that:

[url=http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/HomePage]display text goes here[/url]

Well CR, the beauty of Wikipedia is that you can make an entry for "Voltacity" and Voila!, there is such a word... Failing that, Urban Dictionary

Maybe as there is no limit to voltacity it makes no sense to define it ????

Is that true?- doesn't insulation break down at a voltage not a current? If I'm right, then voltacity could be a measure of insulation  smiley-cool

I'll just stick to making up words in here smiley-cool
I keep hearing "blizzacane" on the news, describing a blizzard with  hurricane force wind.
Going out to work on my driveway, 20-24" of snow overnight.
Pile at the end of my driveway from the plows is 4', right up to the bottom of my mailbox.
