@ Joe above, thanks for all that insight. It's fascinating stuff, at least for me anyway. Us "civilians" take things like power for granted every time we flip a light switch or turn on an electric appliance. We rarely appreciate what goes into making it possible to flip that light switch!

I've pressed many of those buttons in my life!!
