I recently had a breaker trip and I heard the wire snap against the conduit AND I understood the problem...Thanks Bill & ECN!

I recently purchased a Panasonic cordless drill because a guy in New Zealand said he liked his and now I'm enjoying mine...Thanks Bill & ECN!

I now take the extra effort to make absolutly sure that what I'm working on is disconnected and that I'm in a safe situation, or am using the proper gear...Thanks Bill & ECN!

The list goes on and on...

I do not know if Bill even realizes how many people he has helped with this site.

It is just too bad it does not make him the Bill Gates of Electrical Forums.

I've learned much about the NEC and the development of American electrical systems in my time at ECN. Thanks to all who made it possible.

Dave, and all ...

Thanks for the kind words. Remember that there are a lot of contributors here (including yourselves) that make ECN what it is.

Many thanks to you all for your willingness to share, and the comraderie that goes with it.

I say this every so often,but I'll say it again. I've learned more here in a couple of years than in my previous 20 yrs in the trade.

This website has been invaluable to me.
