Another question would be : where should one go to discuss electronics? I
have 2 projects I'd like some feedback on : repairing an ancient guitar
tube amp (specifically, I think the caps in the power supply are
hosored, causing a loud humm... but where to buy high voltage caps of
non-standard capcitance?), and I'd really like to get into PIC programming.
 I'd really like to have a resource where I can ask all the newbie
questions that crop up. (Yes, I've RTFMed, but far to often there's
little subtle things that aren't obvious, but that someone with experience
will know.
