    Hello everyone..

    The date for submitting entries has now passed!! We have a total of 6 entries which is really great. It will take some time to process them however I am starting it now and will have an update in the next day or two.

    I will update the thread when I have completed this. :)

    That's not it. It means the most users ever online was 2027 users on 22 March 2010.. And the list at the bottom are the registered users that are currently online in this forum. Your user name will always be at the first one, I see mine to be first here.. :)

    You were but one of many that day! But you were there, that is half the battle.

    We need the Jeopardy tune playing in the background.

    I hate being a whiner, but my article seems to run off the left side of the page, and is unreadable.

    hi D,
    I can read the text OK, but the diagram is cropped on the right side.

    If you go to the circuits tab and click on the Pencil icon for your article, I think you can edit your image. Perhaps re-size and upload a new image. Just a thought.
