Delayed again!!! Answered

I have been working on my plasma speaker for a long time, after I got everything working, I was about to take a good video of it working. But just then, the MOSFET exploded, and made a huge puff of smoke... Dang! Delayed again! I made and completed the instructable on making a plasma speaker (some of you might had seen it as you are subscribed to me), but I just need a video to prove that the plasma speaker is working. I was going to post the instructable today, but the MOSFET delayed it... :-( It may be a few more days before the instructable is published...

as you use maplin 7.2ah batteries (i have 2 12v 7.2ah and one 6v7.2ah) is it safe to connect them to make 30v 7.2ah for my 120v inverter?

Whatever the hell it is going on... I had ordered 50 MOSFET's, so I won't be delayed again...

After buying 50 MOSFET's I have no pocket change, and I have to pay some money back to my dad because I borrowed some of his money... :-(

No, just good at catching kids who are up to no good.

Then you have some very good experience with them, by you watching their moves and such, you can tell if they are good or up to no good... Very cool!

It's more that they haven't realised how to control their body language - when you're 11, guilty is as guilty does.

Hahaha...I can always tell when the babies have been in my stuff, because they'll suddenly back away from the area and yell, "I didn't touch your (whatever)!!!" Of course, the one will draw on your things and then sign his name on it (he's so proud he can write his name, he signs everything he can!) , so that makes it even easier.

They dig themselves in as well - a common conversation will go...

"I'd like to talk to you about some things you said during the lunch break"

"I didn't call her that I only said that because she said and I didn't kick her I only punched her and anyway..."

Rocket! I bagged a typo. Your turn. You have to get a grammar violation. Then I'll search for a factual error.

I was looking at how they work before, they seems to be tetchy buggers from others accounts, overrated mosfets seem to be recommended by many though it mayn't be much help if it won't go after the change.

That take all the fun out of it. A friend of mine was planning on doing an independent study next semester about electronics, and a plasma speaker was his planned project. I can't wait to see the final project! *subscribes to Plasmana*
