I like your attitude, scuttle. Sometimes your lack of expert knowledge in some area or another gets you into a bit of trouble, but fundamentally you're sound as a bell. Just don't hesitate to recognize when you've made a mistake. You probably don't anyway. There's no shame in being wrong, everybody's wrong from time to time. The ability to change your position is absolutely essential in a rational person. Like they say, the man who never made a mistake never made anything.
When it comes to circuit diagrams I'm pretty hopeless: i have a physics degree and can do tensor calculus and all that high end maths jazz (or used to be able to, its been a while) but circuit diagrams... argggh. That declaration re the resistors was a rare moment of confidence for me - and misplaced, utterly!
