For those of you who do not read your monthly news paper:

Looks useful! I'll certainly look into it, when I design any charger. Although the price will probably be huge...

Nobody's stocking it yet - let us know when you see a price. What's your first born (first-to-be-born) worth, anyway?

Joke not understood. Remember: English is not my native language.

Sorry. It's hard to remember to avoid idiomatic English and common sayings. I notice it with some of Cliff's postings - the British versions of a lot of expressions sound strange over here.

Anyway, when something is expensive it's sometimes likened to costing "your firstborn child," meaning it's beyond value. Another phrase is "costing an arm and a leg," and has about the same meaning.

David, your English is so excellent it's difficult to imagine it's not your first language.

Don't avoid, include an explanation ;-)

I guessed about the meaning, and I apparently guessed right. ;-)

Does anybody want me to split off the off-topic part as a separate thread
into the off-topic forum?

@Jörg

Agreed, go ahead.
I know we ran of the rails again.

Probably be an interesting thread to know what others have had & maybe what role the kids are doing now.
