    Anything with linear in the name sounds much more pleasant than anything with nonlinear in it.
    Very true. But linear circuits are incredibly DULL. And I tend to get confused between all the different terms.

    Hmm, I know hardly any electronics, but I'm assuming circuits that lead to nonlinear equations are easy enough to construct.

    They are, but not so easy to design when you they are in AC with inductors and capacitors. Makes imaginary quantities float up everywhere, which complicate matters.

    True, although some are a bit weird, because they don't ask for bank account number... they must use it for identity theft...

    and the worse thing is... createa a fake email address, go to an internet cafe... and no one can trace you (well I guess they can... but its easy to pull of shall we say)

    Meddling is what boys do best

    Last night celebrating chinese new year in someone's room, we ended up finding the limit of her mini hand-driven paper shredder Then fixing it when it inevitably went wrong. And cleaning up the tea from the shredded tea bags.

    Ouch. If it's been deleted from your hard disk as well then you'll have to recover it from your iPod, assuming you haven't synced it in the meantime...
