P.S it might be more appropriate to submit this question to
sci.electronics.repair or sci.electronics.basic but I am getting used
to be in this group!
And that's the problem, problem posting here because it's their "hang out"
instead of finding the appropriate newsgroup.
Up until late 1995 (or was it '96? it's been so long I can't remember)
there was only sci.electronics and sci.electronics.repair Traffic was
heavy, at least for some, so some decided to split it up into multiple
newsgroups. The vote passed, and we have the multiple newsgroups in
the hierarchy that you see today.
But all of that goes to waste when some fool decided they should post
a basic question in sci.electronics.design because "they like it there".
Likely that fool shouldn't have been posting there in the first place,
because their questions were basic to begin with.
If you can only come up with a vague quesiton, then your question belongs
in sci.electronics.basics Or better yet, start reading some books that
are the time honored way to learn. Then come up with some detail that the
book doesn't answer, or doesn't explain well, and use sci.electronics.basics
to ask a question that will get an asnwer that fills in the missing detail.
Your question is about laziness, because there is no indication that you've
done any reading to see any difference between the two systems. If you
hd, then you'd be specific about what they have in common, or not have
to ask the question as you realize they aren't really different.
I should also point out that when you ask a basic question here, you
often won't get the best answers, because nobody is taking your beginner
status into the equation.
