Hi folks.

According to Forrest Mims, in his Engineer's Notebook, you can tie together the outputs of a CMOS IC to increase the amount of current the IC can source and sink.  For example, Mims uses a 4011 (quad nand gate), and connects all of the inputs of two gates to one another.  He then connects the two outputs to each other.  Can you do the same thing with TTL ICs and get the same effect?  More specifically, a 74LS04?
