I'm working for one of Germany's biggest employers as a team leader.
I have a Master's degree in Electrical Engineering and Applied Computer Technology.

I started programming when I was 14 years old in a programming language called GWBasic and since have finished projects in TurboPascal, Java, PHP, C/C++,C# and Ruby on Rails. I strive to learn more about programming, software engineering and project management.

comment How can I prevent multiple socket from being damaged?
that's what I meant with "loading their capacitors" and "hefty spike". Good to know that the correct (English) term is 'inrush current'. My idea was that you could reduce the current by increasing the inductance of the cable either by applying a ferrit bead - which is quite possibly not enough - or by using longer cables. Are there any devices that would allow me to stagger-start the components - like something I can put in between the multiple socket and the component?
