Friggen computer imploded and I had to start over, does any body remember where those two online calculators were? There was a transformer calculator and a basic calculator. I used them pretty heavily, and now I can't find them.

Also would like to get my railroad power house swich panel wall papaer back if anybody remembers where that was.

Thanks

Thanks Bjarney, that's the picture. Now I just have to find that transformer calculator. Somebody posted it here a bit ago, and I can't find it.

Thanks for the other calculators, I have put those in my favorites folder.

If you really want to waste time, it takes a computer.

Glad you've got everything back up and working. Are you running Windows?

If so, you might find this link amusing: http://humour.50megs.com/jokes/rewin.html

As you probably don't know this old British tune, here are the original lyrics .
