... the interdisciplinary science called tribology, ...
"People who work in the field of tribology are referred to as tribologists".

So are our esteemed administrators, who are multi-disciplinarians, and who study the tribe at Eileen's Lounge, tribologists? :flee: :flee: :flee:

How is the incoming 120vAC 60Hz power supply tied to "the clocking speed" of today's personal computers?
For those who know more about electricity than me, there is buried in https://sremg.groups.io/g/main/topic/85992907 this exo-thread [[[ Link requires login. ]]] a discussion of the impact of Regenerative Braking trying to feed juice back into a United Kingdom electrified railway train system.

Thanks Hans; I'd forgotten that. What is the Lounge protocol? Should I delete the reference altogether? Delete the post?
