Sandrine is my real name, I used to go by Sandy because everyone here changes it to that anyway. That is until I went to Paris and met this guy. He couldn't understand "Sandy" so I told him Sandrine, and it was "oh sandrine je t'aime mon amour, je t'adore ma belle sandrine" the whole week, so I kinda go used to it again.

Hey all,
Just signed up and I thought I might break the ice a bit.

I gave myself the name Thunderbolt because of the obsession I have with these things.

Ill be building an improved one for my DT Major.

Nice to meet you all.

Isn't that an air raid siren? There are (or were last I checked a decade ago) a few in Toronto but different looking -much bigger and had 600V motors driving them. had always meant to fire one up just to be a PITA. Too fat now to climb poles.

Good to see another geekette about the place. teh others here have left us over time and now we just wallow around in our stinky socks and getting dorito crumbs under the keys - which explains my sticky shift key.

take the uv one for example
Nice. i got a dozen UV's from Soren a while back and swapped em for the whites in a princess auto Al flashlight. Tis pretty cool. MAde me laugh though when I saw the identical light from Edmund for over $100USD.

Yes it is, it's a Thunderbolt 1000/1000T (No visible difference between them). My favourites are the 1003 series which have a 'bow-tie' separating the horn and chopper units.

I have been facinated with electronics for a while now and I really want to get into it before too much longer.

Nice to meet you.

I'm tired of my name I'd like to change it if a mod could to orangemarmaladeontoast

I thought of this a while ago, my sister always used to eat orange marmalade and gouda on toast. Also theres the Orange Alternative which helped with the Orange revolution.

I've always wondered how people type japanese or chinese for that matter, sorry if that's a stupid question, it seems like everybody here is bilingual, I bad being just another american, I know some latin though, I know a very tiny bit of french from earlier this year and an even smaller bit of italian from what my mother has tried to teach me, I was supposed to be learning french this year, but I'm too sick for school lately.

No it's not a stupid question, I don't know how to type Japanese either. But being Singaporean Chinese I do know how to type Chinese: Chinese words have pronunciations which can be represented using English alphabets. So using the Chinese IME that can be installed in Windows XP, you type in the representation of the word using English alphabets. The computer than comes up with a list of Chinese characters for you to choose and enter into the screen.

Can't really remember where this came from. Know that I've been using it for awhile on many websites. Mainly came out of my interst with horror films I believe. Nothing too complex really. laugh.gif

I came up with mine because I wanted a name the represented my way of thinking (many things at once) and my love of solving complex problems and sounded good. I made up the word multicomplex then googled it and found it already existed I liked what it was though so I kept it.

In mathematics, the multicomplex numbers form a commutative n dimensional algebra generated by one element e which satisfies ~e^n = -1.

i = 0 to n-1? Gah! rolleyes.gif

So is x a vector, or what?

I personally prefer e^x = sigma[x^n/n!].

Answering questions is a tricky subject to practice. Not due to the difficulty of formulating or locating answers, but due to the human inability of asking the right questions; a skill that, were one to possess, would put them in the "answering" category.

I have no idea if there are errors in it or not thats just the way it shows in wikipedia.
it looks cool though, so far as math goes at least.
