Isn't that so cool. Lol going back to the basics for me
Honestly thats what i am going to do is do all the basic stuff as a refresher. I need some work on resistors and such because i always have trouble deciding what resistors to buy.Who knows it may help or it may just be fun.
Did you have one as a kid?or own one now even?
I had one, but it wasn't that fancy with the front panel and all ;) I also had a crystal radio with the big beige "pensioners earpiece" that I took to primary school and attached to the flagpole. It was just amazing to think (without batteries) I could drag that AM channel out of the airwaves. It was like magic!
Best memory was the chemistry set I got for Christmas though. Me and my brother didn't give a hoot about the instructions, warnings or experiments. We just put everything in a test tube and shook it madly till it blew up!!! Which then reminds me of the kid at high school that would sit at the back of the lab making animals and grotesque figurines by melting test tubes with the bunsen burners... ahhh last memory for today: the teacher was going to do the ubiquitous sodium in a bowl of water trick; but the sodium was too old, so nothing happened. So we were all shouting "add more Sir add more!!!" Which of course he did :D Till...... BANG!!! He was coivered in water it was quite hilarious.
Thanks for the memories Bado and don't fret - the Viper won't be forgotten. There can only be one!!!
