Just saw you moved. Welcome to the USA! We're in the same state, I'm in the SouthEast portion. What a small world.

Thanks. Still settling in of course, and LizzyastroUK isn't here yet, she's packing stuff up back home and keeping an eye on my mother. I miss my wife !

So you're near Philly or what ?

Steve

I must say, that was a really big move for you and your family. And I am sure LizzyastroUk misses you too.

As for my locale, I am about 30 miles west of Philly in a little town named Phoenixville. If you watch the original Blob with Sreve McQueen, that's the place. The Theater is still here and in daily use. Only about 2 - 2.5 hours from you, depending on which route you take.

If you ever get out to State College, be sure to look us up. We must be about equidistant from Harrisburg - we ran down there to look at the huge Costco there last weekend, and the boys have developed a taste for Arby's restaurants - there aren't any out in State College.

I've not been involved in power electronics much, but that agrees with what I remember too

Hey, I noticed your comment on the question "What kind of wood makes the best kind of bow?" You seem to know a thing or two about bows. Perhaps you could help me with this nutshell... Any advice, or warnings you have for me are welcome. Here's the link: http://www.instructables.com/answers/Archery-question-What-are-the-proscons-to-having/

Ack! You changed your image... I hardly recognize you anymore!

Is the force still with you?

Of course.....

Kiteman posted the original picture in a reply to me yesterday.

He is Professor Branestawm - a character in a series of children's stories I read when I was younger too.
I think I'll just come straight to you whenever I have a question!

I was going to ask - "what on earth are you always doing commenting on my stuff at ridiculous hours of the morning"...I post all night on my shiftwork 911 job...you must be mad to be awake at this hour...

Then I realized that you're of course 110 degrees around the planet from me 7 hours ahead...then I felt silly....then I typed this.

Right back at 'ye !

Steve, from Manchester, UK.
My extended family is all up north there, Rotherham (Sunnyside) and an uncle/his family in the south (Calne, near London)...

I've got to make a visit one of these years.  It's been ages since I saw the UK.
