Here's an interesting article a friend directed me to.

Heard a bit about that on (the BBC?). Wonder how much "massaging" of the truth has been done to accomplish goals? Such intrigue... :D

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Plenty.

The 5th paragraph has three or four particularly relevant links, but the whole thing's worth reading.

Tom,  
Very interesting article. I only believe about 30% of what I see on prime time news. Example: I do believe that Iraq was attacked. I do believe that people are protesting about it.  
I don't believe that they are telling the whole truth and the media is extreamly biast and this thing is a huge horrible scam.
