CAN HAVE IT BOTH WAYS
I have a hard copy subscription to Nuts& Volts.
I intend to keep my hard copy version. Tonight, I went
to see the online version. I really appreciate being
able to have both versions available to me. It is very

SWITCH THE LABEL
I just read the article titled "The Perception Circuit"
in the January issue. I just wanted to suggest a label for
SW1. The switch could be labeled the Male/Female
switch. When in the male position, the inputs cause a
decison to be made and displayed. When in the female
position, the inputs cause a decision to be made but the
device changes its mind over and over again after that
first decision is made. (Please note that
this is meant as humor.)
I am extremely pleased with your
magazine, which seems to improve with
each issue. As an electronics professional, I find it is a goldmine of new
ideas. Even the clever "No Volts" weather instrument enclosures (January ‘06)
can be adapted to many other electronic
uses. I have also enjoyed the many
thought-provoking historical articles
such as the Crosley "Readio." You are
right on track for the 21st century!
It sure would be nice if the author
would have included a parts list for the
PIC project as shown in Figure 4 on
page 76 of the January ‘06 issue. Since
I'm new to electronics, it would help if
I knew what to purchase.
