    Love this guys tutorials, but am I the only one who finds his seemingly over-enthusiastic tone patronizing? Sounds like he thinks he’s talking to 5 year olds. :

    • Collin Cunningham

      I can see what you mean but I think that’s just purely honest enthusiasm. Dave can get just as as excited as a little kid when talking about switch-mode supplies – and that is a very awesome super-power ;)

      • Matt Mets

        Yeah, what Collin says :-). I haven’t spoken to Dave personally, but he comes off as being genuinely passionate about these topics. Especially since he can go on about them for such great lengths!

    • Dave Jones

      Sorry if you find my tutorials patronising, that’s certainly not the intention.
      Yes, I have a high level of natural enthusiasm, so a lot of stuff naturally flows out from that that it seems some people don’t like.
      But hey, you can never please everyone even some of the time, so I don’t try, I just do what I do.
      Publish and be damned!

      Regards
      Dave.

        We love you, Dave! Thanks for taking your time to create such awesome tutorials. I aspire to be as accomplished an engineer as you!

      • Collin Cunningham

        Right on.
        Please do keep it up!

    It is very annoying how he talks. I’m sure he could talk normal if he wanted to.

  • Shane M.

    Thanks Dave. That was a great explanation.
