What transformer?

What you're actually doing, is reconfiguring the input from voltage doubler
(110V) to rectifier (220)
The idea is to end up with roughly the same DCV feeding the SMPS.

(yes, your computer will almost certainly run on high voltage DC.  It would
be the world's cheapest, and most efficient UPS)  You may need to supply a
60/50 hz input for timekeeping though.

Got a need to read Bar codes?  http://www.barcodechip.com
Bi-directional read of UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-8, EAN-13, JAN, and Bookland, with
two or five digit supplemental codes, in an 8 pin chip, with NO external parts.
