Funny you posted this while I was looking at the circuit. A lot of little chuckles from EE classes. Some of these jokes are for EE only. Others are just plain funny.

Hmmm, could that be the Georgia Dome in the middle? I wonder if Randall Munroe was there?

Talking Re: XKCD

Someone should invite Randall Munroe to either the nearest regional or to the championships next year! He'll find lots of fans there! (Maybe he could even sell his tshirts and posters!)

This looks rather daunting especially with 2 wires which cross over others. Way too many meshes for any basic method.

With the free student version of AIM-SPICE, available for download here.

It took a little less than 3 minutes to type in the netlist.

Setting up the netlist is very simple and requires no special training. SPICE didn't seem to have any trouble solving the netlist. The log file said it took "0" seconds for the program to solve it.
