did i mention routers or rootrs as some of the UK may say  :-DD
I know a lot of Aussies who are dead against "rowter" because we take a direct "root" not a direct "rowt". I kinda agree but I still say "rowter" instead of "rooter"

I draw resistors as boxes, and call LEDs like LEDs and not L.E.Ds

Learning about electronics in the USA, mostly from my dad, the one that was a surprise for me was nanofarads.  Traditionally in the US you just went from <1000 pF to .001 uF.  But the more I've been exposed to it, the more it actually feels less awkward to write 1 nF, 10 nF, 100 nF.

How it is spelled: gig-a-hertz

There is no need for popcorn as there is no ambiguity about it.
I'm not an EE--what am I doing here?
