A Non-Event

This will be a short post because of all the things that didn't happen. The modified power supply was a big success or a big disappointment, depending on your perspective. We took the newly modified power supply out onto the driveway, away from any structures in case it caught fire, and plugged it in. With a small DC motor attached, we turned it on. The event was recorded on video, in case something disasterous (but nevertheless cool) happened. Instead, the power supply worked as intended, the motor an the internal fan spun up, all the binding posts showed the correct voltage, and the load resistor does not appear to get particularly warm. So my apologies, dear reader, no video of electronics being transformed into a smoking pile of slag this week!
