    Hi Jerry and Thanks for your kind remarks.
    Yes, I have considered making several publications and I will definitely take your request into consideration. If you have any special topic requests then please let me know.
    I’m glad the website is helpful for you, I still have much more content and several photos to add as time allows.

    I love the web site and my comment would be that I would love to have the question and
    answers in hard copy book format so I could be studying them and learning from them when away from the computer. Have you ever considered publishing a book of Q/A’s ?
    I would buy one and I’m sure many others would also. As an electrician I try to answer the questions before going to the answer section. I test myself using your website even if I’m not looking for a specific answer to a question.
    Thanks for such a great website,
    Jerry
