[ from i.n.kurtzer (930418.2200)]

i often find myself lost when the discussions become chokeful
of terms from an admittedly alien engineering lexicon. instead
of slowing down the disussions for the resident peon (clarifications
to the engineering ignorant have been made by some and i sincerely
appreciate their effort) i would rather someone point out a
thourough introduction to control systems--the primer may meet
this but as am also computer illiterate (a problem that will be
rectified this summer) i am equally lost. this misspellings
above and the missing "i" that i am unable to correct will
attest to this.
