Besides those pages, I also offer an organized tour of using computers (large and small) for sensing and control: sensors, actuators (or "effectors"), and the processing to integrate them. Those pages are hierarchical, to help you study what you want to study. (Those pages also get into the details of specific devices.)
I've spent most of my time on the digital side.
If only I had been at school after 1985! If only I had some local fellow enthusiasts!
I get a lot of pleasure from my dabbling with electronics. My most gratifying 'triumph' to date was building, from scratch, the hardware and software for a 6802 single board computer.
EVERY school (and many homes) should be introducing children to the hobby of electronics. I hope the pages attached to this will help anyone so inclined.
In December 2014, I came across a nice site with a Java applet which provides you with neat, interactive, graphics illustrating many principles and basic circuits (A sub-page of Falstad.com). You have to click on the "go to the applet" link, and then load the different simulations using the "circuits" menu item.
The globe on the right helps me see if doing these pages is worth the time it takes. It is interactive; play with it, if you wish. (You need to use your browser's "back" button to get back here after doing so.) The only information the system records is when visitors access the site, and where their ISP connected them to the internet. (In my case, that is 60 miles from where I live, at the moment.)

The gates in my computer are AND, OR and NOT, not Bill.
Looking for email, domain registration, or web site hosting? If you visit 1&1's site from here, it helps me. They host my website, and I wouldn't put this link up for them if I wasn't happy with their service. They offer things for the beginner and the corporation.
Ad from page's editor: Yes.. I do enjoy compiling these things for you. I hope they are helpful. However... this doesn't pay my bills!!! Sheepdog Software (tm) is supposed to help do that, so if you found this stuff useful, (and you run a Windows or MS-DOS PC) please visit my freeware and shareware page, download something, and circulate it for me? Links on your page to this page would also be appreciated!

Why does this page cause a script to run? Because of the Google panels, and the code for the search button. Also, I have my web-traffic monitored for me by eXTReMe tracker. They offer a free tracker. If you want to try one, check out their site. Why do I mention the script? Be sure you know all you need to about spyware.
