Streetrodder, I'll bet you have some of your own Sherlock Ohms stories. If you do, please send one along. Shoot for 350 words or more, and include a short two- or three-sentence bio.

You can send it to: rob.spiegel@ubm.com

Rob, I do (and did)!

I was the "Case of the Noisy CT" guy  :)

I'm sure I can dig up another if needed.

Growing up on a small farm in Eastern Oregon, I learned how to fix a lot of things with tools/supplies at hand (I have a pickup and baling wire story).  It's served me VERY well in this career and in my hobbies.

Cheers;

Paul

Will do.  It's funny, I'm an EE by education, but my best stories are of mechanical fixes.  I'll see if i have any electronic based ones as well.

We're always looking for Sherlock Ohms stories. If you have more than one, the more the merrier.

Surely somebody on your team wanted to rebuild the table on the spot with longer nails?  I would have :-)

Good story.  Made me smile!

I love stories where people make changes in someone else's project without thinking of or knowing of the damage they could do. I unplugged an extension cord that ran to a copier so I could move a desk to another area and then I was going to replug it. Harmless right.

Well someone else had already disconnected the copier and had a computer plugged in. I pulled the plug and heard one of the book keepers say, "Oh no. I just lost March." I was tempted to quickly reconnect before I was found out, but confessed and had to indure icy stares for a good week or so.
