  • In addition to the flowing voltage complaints, the troubling term "carbon film transistor" appears multiple times. That's a new one I haven't heard of. "Bipolar junction transistor" is the correct term here.

  • Chill_Bill, I wouldn't worry about looking clueless at Radio Shack. The staff there usually don't even know what those components are; they just stock the shelves. Whenever I'm there I just tell sales people that I'm looking for components and they leave me alone and try to sell a cell phone to someone else. Plus, you'll always be clueless at something (many things, really), but at least you're actively learning new stuff.

No public wish lists :(
