Oh, and a quick question while I’m here: The test circuit included in the instructions calls for a 1uF cap.  Is it OK to substitute an electrolytic here?  I assume it’s usually OK as long as the behavior of the circuit doesn’t depend on storing charge of different polarities at different times.  I just don’t have a 1uF ceramic at the moment.  (I ordered more stock recently.)

Thanks again!
