Not if they discover what 'The Knack' really is, before it's too late. ;-) -- You can't have a sense of humor, if you have no sense.

You mean ain't going back to the old method using the kitchen oven? I ain't going back to that either, from here on it's always the barbecue. Same for turkey, BTW. We haven't made one in the kitchen oven in about a decade. -- Regards, Joerg http://www.analogconsultants.com/

So, do women who marry successful engineers have "Great Knackers"? (I pronounce that like "Knackwurst") Paul=20

Speak for yourself. I can't stand that greasy crap, unless I need to vomit. -- You can't have a sense of humor, if you have no sense.

They're just fascinated with all the grunting that engineers do when they meet women. They want to understand 'The Knack'. ;-) -- You can't have a sense of humor, if you have no sense.

Why do you persist with these preposterous claims? Until you produce some credible evidence that you are anything more than a loud-mouthed tosser you will remain sed's favourite object of derision. If you really want to make the world a better place you know what to do.

I did more in the last month to make the world a better place than you will in your entire, pathetic life.

Yeah, I can tell that you're a real brain. I just put together the fastest backbone in the nation. I built an advanced gateway for 15 select cities and several in Canada. All cutting edge 10Gb/s Juniper networking fabric. As for today, my contribution is that I told some lame dumbfuck to fuck off and die. Fuck Off And Die, lame dumbfuck.

And what have you done with your life that's of any use to anyone?. Working on your logic, nothing most likely...

I'm afraid that you are the retard. The comment high-lighted and made explicit a subtle problem with using NTC thermistors which has been bugging people for a long time now. It's a minor contribution, because hardly anybody reads comments in "Rev. Sci. Instruments" - and nobody ever seems to cite them - but it sure would have helped me if I'd read it earlier in my career (when I read a lot of that kind of stuff). Regular electronic engineers don't read the scientific instrument literature - and those that do are correctly disdainful of the quality of the electronics described - but quite a bit of useful stuff ends up there. -- Bill Sloman, Nijmegen
