Sorry to bother you, i'm new to the forum and haven't got used to all the icons and stuffand i'm using my n95 phone(ancient)., and this is the only way i can figure out how to post a question..

I.ve got it running nicely on a LM317, 9v@115ma for now anyway, can you give me any info on the diode,max ma etc, or point me to anyone who can, having trouble finding any datasheet info,any help would be greatly appreciated.! Fantastic forum this..! Thanks..!
