ok,...tested that and it works... however now I'm stuck at a part that confuses me. I'm attempting the one-shot circuit as depicted in this post... I got it to work... once. I didn't think it was quite literally a one-shot deal...I figured that after the cap was discharged it would function again. I'm going to mess with it some more, but anyone have any tips on why it would work once and not again (even after I drain the cap).
