Well, obviously the examples worked... but that doesn't tell me how to
use it :)
All I know is SuperSpice work, which is expected, but for a newbie
like me, it's not very friendly which is the point I think we're on
The pros in all likelihood already have a preferred spice simulator.
While newbies like me are still looking for one that would work for
basic stuff as well as eventually more complex stuff.
If we can't get something to work somewhat on a trial and error basis,
eventually I expect most of us would simply get the program with the
most reference books in the local bookstore or most web resources.

True. But I took the circuit off the net so I expected it to work :)
I expect to see a graph pop up that says DC when I do the run thing
and alt click on the resistor... but I get AC analysis instead.
I tried using the AC sine wave generator, connected both ends of it to
the diode rectifier which was connected to a resistor. Didn't work.
Connected only the +ve end of it to the rectifier, the -ve to ground.
Put the loose end of the rectifier to ground. Didn't work either, and
for some reason I really didn't think the circuit should be that way

It took me a while to figure out after posting the last message. It's
Click and HOLD, then press delete. The instructions made it seem to be
simply click (which implies press and release) then delete.
L.Angel: I'm looking for web design work.
If you need basic to med complexity webpages at affordable rates, email me :)
