It's a substantial accomplishment (especially for someone who's not an electrician), and I greatly appreciate Ed's depth of experience and willingness to share time here.

Well done, Ed.

    There's not a lot of users at that rep level anymore. Community congrats should still be appropriate as long as the achievement is uncommon

    @nobody Ed's name still shows up plenty of places - e.g., old questions that come up because of "Community" or because someone tried to answer a question with another question. He is one of those people I recognize from when I started posting here and definitely admire & respect. Jan 16 at 1:19
