Hi Max, first I would like to thank you for the e-books. And other thing is that whenever I start reading your post I have to be ready with the dictionary-lol:-)

It's like I always say about my mother -- she has such an amazing memory that sometimes she remembers things that haven't even happened yet LOL

Not that I'm comparing myself to the Bard, but -- as you will read on this website -- "The English language owes a great debt to Shakespeare. He invented over 1700 of our common words by changing nouns into verbs, changing verbs into adjectives, connecting words never before used together, adding prefixes and suffixes, and devising words wholly original."

And if it was good enough for Shakespeare, then it's certainly good enough for me LOL

Yeah, thanks Max!

This is where I sometimes get my hit, when I have a craving for words. :-)

...and that's not the only quiz they have.

Wow -- that's pretty good -- I just tried it -- I only got 7 out of 10 -- it's not easy!

Another thing I like is a visual dictionary -- you know, for when you can't recall the name for that thing on the side of a wooden sailing ship (or whatever)

That's just one more service I offer LOL   I love words -- I love doing the "check your word skill" thing in the reader's digest -- and when I'm reading something and I find a new word I always look it up, so I try to add a bit of this to my blogs.

@Max... That's really nice thing to do! Somewhere I've heard of having a good vacabulary is good for brain(I think so). And even I have subscribed for dictionary.com's word of the day mailing list.

Thanks for that Max.  TI have a lot of good info available.  Bonnie Baker knows her stuff, I have seen some of her articles previously so I downloaded these and they are as good as expected.  I previously did an article on another TI offering on Embedded.com here

http://www.embedded.com/electronics-blogs/embedded-down-under/4439696/Useful-TI-analog-pocket-book

Also highly recommended.

@David Ashton,Max

I agree these articles are great, I only wish I had had them about when I started using the first 714 OpAmps so many years ago.

Max is not the only one that can get carried away with words, maybe Max will see fit to post Crusty's latest "To Hell in a Handcart" offereing.

Max - these are good resources.  While many things are available for free on the Internet, some have better value. Thank you for sharing.
