    Please contain your tinkerings to your own equipment so you don't include others when something goes wrong.

    I walked out of one of these classes. I was 19 and taking classes concurrent with on the job training.

    The instructor put a wiring diagram on the board and started to walk us through it. When I pointed out that it was a dead short, he told me I didn't know what I was talking about.

    I left.

    Having been in school more than a couple of times, I know that sometimes you get a lousy instructor. That sucks if you're really there to learn.
