Interview Part 2: A voyage on Veroboard

After reading "Everyday Electronics" as a 1970s teenager, I started writing my own constructional articles. I've uploaded the original EE articles (PDF) with separate colour photos of the actual 1970's prototypes, recently unearthed in my workshop.

My introduction to electronics

I first started out in hobby electronics back in 1975 when as a schoolboy I wrote my first little item for the UK magazine Practical Electronics. After that, hobby electronics became a major part of what I did both as a freelancer and a full-time professional worker in industry and commerce.

The purpose of this web site, though, is to showcase what I've done in the past and chat about some current work or ideas that's passing over my desk or workbench at the moment.

These days, I'm not so much into electronics project design itself, and I leave all the clever PIC microcontroller stuff to the multitude of people who are much more clever than I am.

My associated website is dedicated more to EPE (Everyday Practical Electronics) Magazine and you'll find an increasing number of resources there too, including some online reprints of some of my portfolio.

Where do I start? I'll answer that next.
