    I don't think I could make it there since I'd have to take the sidewalk that leads to the driveway that leads to the street that leads to the highway that leads to the interstate that I'd probably have to take to get there.

    Just too many different confusing names.
    Much like this confusing grounding stuff.

    That's not an EGC's only purpose. I'll let you unaware guys figure that one out.

    Perhaps "Safety Conductor"?

    That is not quite as confusing as driving on a parkway or parking on the driveway.

    Leave it the way it is. I hate it when I know what something means and how to use it and then it gets changed to something "better".

    And you kids get off my lawn!

    Tell me about it, 1999 and 2002 NEC both worked on major restructuring of the code. Maybe wasn't so many actual changes to how we were doing things, but took a while to get used to where to find things after they had been moved.

    It's like an "upgrade" of a software program where the program writers don't change the functionality of the program, they just move things around so that you have to relearn the interface. I guess those guys have to keep busy doing something...
