Re: BIG DUMMY Accident

	Hey, I'm that person with the 10KVA pig who knows absolutely nothing, and
just for the record, I didn't have anything to do with that accident. :) 
I'm sorry I can't compare with the inconsumate repository of electrical
knowledge stored in your brain, but I don't plan on having a funeral until
I'm 85 or so. :-)
