Default Re: Cretinous idea - The combined volume pot and mains SW.

I started using the word "pessimise" some 25 years ago when taking items from work to the EMC test house. The blokes there would scan the frequencies looking for peaks of noise, and then rotate the antenna, the work piece etc, to, in their words, "optimise" the height of the peak on the analyser. I wanted the thing to pass, so my name for their "optimise" was "pessimise".
