I agree, Chuck. Like many of the Sherlock Ohms blogs, it's hard to imagine how they figured out such an off-the-wall solution. It is certainly not intuitive. The trick here was remembering something odd from the past.

This is what I love about the Sherlock Ohms postings. You can turn the equipment upsidedown to find the problem, but in the end, it was a line that had to be drawn darker. This is a common solution to difficult problems -- look at what was difficult at an earlier stage in the equipment's development.
