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.
I also have a more jumbled collection of bits and pieces which are intended to be added to this more ordered section in due course. You can visit that selection by clicking here.
If you click here, you will be taken to a page with book recommendations.
Click here to visit my homepage where you
can explore other areas, such as education, programming, investing.
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.
