I was quite sure this "discussion" would deteriorate into name calling and silliness. Thanks for making my prophecy come true. Some people refuse to come out of their caves.
Similarly, from the start, i pretty much assumed you couldn't answer in an engineering fashion or answer even one question honestly, but is was fun to see how far you would bend before bailing out.
Fwiw, Engineering isn't silliness, its what honest design depends on but it's never to late to learn something new, hence a number of sincere attempts to get you to explain directionality leading to the conclusion you can't and are an alchemist in a world of chemistry.
More jibber jabber from the man who lives in a cave. An engineer, a real engineer, would have gotten to the bottom of this whole wire directionality thing a long time ago. You rely on phoney arguments like "voltage velocity" and other pseudo engineering terminology. It's apparently true what they say, you can't teach an old dog new tricks.
Why Geoff I am glad to not be your kind of engineer in fact I am an inventor and here are a couple samples of what I have done “living in a cave” as you put it;
The first invention link might even appeal to you especially as it looks like magic to most and all are the result of understanding how things work;
Would “your kind” of engineer have inventions which changed the way things are done, some examples;
Or would “your kind” of engineer have changed the face of large scale sound in just a few years?
Have you ever been to a stadium and heard what concert speakers sound like?, they don’t sound like this.
Pop on some headphones; By this fall, 4 years after introducing the products, we will have provided the sound systems for more than half of the 100,000 seat stadiums in the USA.
Soon there will be several recording studios using our smaller Synergy horn loudspeaker systems for monitoring audio too and next season we are introducing a new “stereo capture” system which can capture an entire hemisphere, try a recording or two, again use headphones.
So, this is sort of fun, teach me a new trick Geoff, somehow in some way if at all possible, try to describe how / why audio signals aren’t AC and audio cables and wire are signal directional.
