 Your questions about caps in old amps are surely
OT. The PIC stuff is at least close. Still for both
of these, there are better place. It sounds like
you've not even researched News Groups.
'rec.antiques.radio&phono' is surely a better place
for your amplifier question and groups like
'comp.arch.embedded.piclist' would surely be a better
place for your pic questions.
 Why, when there are plenty of other resourses that
are better, would you think that OT subjects are
OK to dump on this list that is suppose to be dedicated
to old computers.
 This isn't the only resourse on the net.
