Re: 1273: "Tall Infographics"

Infographics are great!
So long as the actual information and the graphs are of good quality and have sources somewhere.

Re: Electronic engineers to the rescue: Some Diodes.

It seems fairly pointless to have two series of three diodes one in either direction and with no other connections. Perhaps a simple wire would not be able to hold the non conductive material in place? Mind you, I've only just started on second semester. EDIT: Wnderer makes a great point!That would ...
