Add a tip to Challenge 31

It might be nice to add a tip to the puzzle book for this challenge. Possibly something like: turn the capacitor in such a way that both hands point to zero before you charge the battery.

Also, I forgot to think about shorts when I removed the capacitor, it might be worth adding a warning.

Otherwise, nice puzzle!

Yes, the short to the battery when you remove the capacitor is a bit of a shock. Was happy when the discharge parts were added.

The solution shown has the switch and the capacitor connected to the resistor using two separate chains. Would it be acceptable to just use one (longer) chain to link the three together? If I were physically creating this circuit with real wire, wouldn’t I wire it with wire in a single loop?
