	Grr... ok I'll check out relays until 3pm (shivers down spine).

I like my motor circuit.  If things were going my way, I would frame up my
working H-bridge and nail it to your door as a constant reminder that big

I'll look into the relays.

	No, I only own a 4050 chip now (that's my driver chip).  You'll

cry now.
