Transformers were invented before transistors.

This thread has some interesting info:

I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

Transistors have a Q point, this being the quiescent dc operating conditions.

I prefer the Q shape of the case, I'm going with that....

When we want your NPN, we'll ask for it  :D :D

Hi, for the noobs.

NPN transistor,  look at the emitter arrow,  (N)ot (P)ointing i(N).

Tom.... :)

Twinkle Twinkle little star, power equals I squared R. (That's all you need to know, you derive the rest)

Good one. I think of Male/Female symbols as (N)o (P)u__y to(N)ight.

Bluebottle appears to have been 'deaded' in almost every episode.
