I'm fairly certain that tinning of conductors keeps copper and rubber from chemically reacting, preventing corrosion of the copper conductor.

Scott - how have you been!!! smile

It sure has been a long time since I saw a posted message with "Bjarney" attached!

Hope everything is going OK in the "West Southern Inner Northeast ... "

Just an FYI, my E-mail address has changed (again), and is no longer within the "Pacbell" domain.

Here is a Phonetic version of one address, which messages will actually be accepted by the Mailbot, and not bounced back with SMTP Error 550:

designer at setelectric dot net

(remove the spaces between words, swap the word "at" with the "At" symbol [Shift + "2"], and make the "Dot" a _Dot_)

Send me a message when you get an urge to speak geek!
