Subject: QPD Voltage Regulators 

The voltage regulator on the QPD breadboard seems to be having problems... yesterday Eric helped me debug my circuit and discovered that the +12V regulator was overheating, so we replaced it. Today, I found that the -12V regulator was also doing the same thing, so I replaced it. However, it's still overheating. We checked all of the setup for the power regulators yesterday, so I'm not sure what's wrong.

I've also noticed that not all the connections on the breadboard that I've been using seem to work - I may search for a new breadboard in this case. Need to check I'm not doing something stupid with that.
