Can nomeone explain this to me: current(AC vs DC)

I've got some of these small Halogen "Under-the-cabnet" lights rated at 20 watts and 12 Volts each.<p>If I'm understanding correctly, 20 watts divided by 12 volts is about 1.7 amps. However on AC 12V I'm reading about 1 amp, and on DC 12V I'm reading almost 2 amps.<p>What am I missing?<p> Thank you,...

Re: Free Not-For-Resale Copy of Visual Basic .NET 2003 Stand

Thanks hp, but the only reason I got started in Vb.NET is because they offer it free, and I don't believe C# is exactly free. Also, the .NET framework comes standered on XP.<p>John Paul.<p>[ June 14, 2004: Message edited by: John Paul ]<p>[ June 14, 2004: Message edited by: John Paul ]</p>

Yes, designing the forms and setting the properties is simple. You just draw them and then enter the properties you want, but learning all the code is what I have been trying to get the hang of in the past week.<p> :cool: <p>John Paul.
