sorry I read that wrong, I thought you said that, "DC hovers around the 0V line." Heh...

I’m not exactly sure what you're saying alchemist but they are using unidirectional there to mean on polarity. Otherwise, I agree with you. Also, so far as I know DC hovers around whatever voltage it is, not necessarily the 0V range: if it is 10 volts of DC then it will be at 10V on the Y axis. I ...

damn i guess my Electrical engineering teacher/text book was wrong because you say so... and i'm not speaking of ac, that's totally different, it just constantly changes polarity: it flows in a sin wave rather than in a strait line such as DC current. I figured I wouldn't need to expalin this as it ...

I thought electricity flowed from + to -? Electicity flows both ways at the same time. It's just easier to think of electricity moving from positive to negative for producing circuits. There have been the theories for both ways: conventional theory (positive to negative) and electron flow theory (n...

I'm willing to buy the book and ship it at cost if I get paid in advance. Send me a check or something. If you're interested I'll post the prices. I work at a UPS store (basically a place where all we do is ship things) so I can give you an exact cost for shipping if I take the book to work. I'd be ...

I understand how the pins would get bent back after 20 years of use, but if you just bent them back a little bit, wouldn't that bring them back to where they were out of the factory? That's all I was saying. That's how they "wear out" they get bent out of where they should be. I suggest looking at ...

the bottom pins on my connector are "a silver metal" too, don't worry about it. The problem is that they're not making contact with the cart. I was flipping through ben's book and he tells you how to bend the pins back into place. Buy the book and it will help you with making this NES cart work and ...

Actually, bending the prongs is not a good idea. It will make the pins on the cartridges wear out. How do they wear out? What exactly do you mean by that? Do you mean that by bending it so much the copper loses it's abilty to transfer energy? Or do you mean the pins will break? If you bend the pins...

I would suggest just refurbishing the existing connector. The metal prongs just got bend so they aren't making good contact with the connector anymore. Bend em back into place and you're good to go. Cheap, easy, and quicker than waiting for an ebay item to arrive.
