Well you'all might as well know that I am Techno challenged, I can never understand the difference between a watt ,a volt and an amp. and have had enough electrical shocks to warn me of the dangers of loose wires! .My Fathers creative genes I got, but his clear understanding of electricity not. One night I walked into the garage where he was always tinkering around with someone else's machine to be repaired, Peter Cawley's electric iron or Mrs O Haire's radio there he was standing in puddles of water from a rainy Irish night, he had a public address system with a gigantic microphone hooked up to the cortina's battery, when there was a spark and a loud crackle out of the loudspeakers and he cautioned me not to move as the whole car had become live! as he gingerly! reached over and removed the hot lead from the battery terminals, and tried to explain to me the power of the ampere, "It's all in the Amp" to make a long story short when I click on the faces of the young lads in the band with my mouse nothing happens!!?
