One thing that this thread has thrown up that I've just noiced is that
RS means different things on the different sides of the Atlantic.
Apparently in the states it is used as a non-TLA for Radio Shack,
generally known over here as Tandy, a high street electronics vendor
that does the usual range of mobile phones and car stereos, but also
some electronic components at rather high prices.....RS in the UK and
Europe refers to Radiospares/Electromail, a catalogue company with an
almost monolithic domination of the catalogue market, challenged only
by the Farnell/Premier/Newark catalogue. If you are in electronics
over here and someone says <RS> you start thinking about a foot-thick
*no joking, honest* pile of catalogues or an increasingly easy to use
PC CDROM, with just about every component available, whereas over
there you mean a nasty little high street store.....bear this in mind
when you use contractions of names in future....
