I love electronics from great 7, when I build first transformer

with 36 turns on primary and 1 turn on secondary to generate 6V

from 220Vac, according to textbook formula. Teacher didn’t let me plug

it in the wall. It was 65 years ago.

 Studied telecommunication (telephone switches) and it was analog and mechanical at the time.

Later, I like to use computer to control something real.

When I retired, I discover STAMP after PICAXE and now ARDUINO.

It’s amazing stuff, but not so easy for old guy.

@zee Welcome to the forum. Wait till you are in your 80's, even harder but still fun.

First computer 1959. Retired from my own computer company 2004.
Hardware - Expert in 1401, and 360, fairly knowledge in PC plus numerous MPU's and MCU's
Major Languages - Machine language, 360 Macro Assembler, Intel Assembler, PL/I and PL1, Pascal, Basic, C plus numerous job control and scripting languages.
My personal scorecard is now 1 PC hardware fix (circa 1982), 1 open source fix (at age 82), and 2 zero day bugs in a major OS.
